POLICE have today appealed for the good samaritan who took mortally injured motorist, Michael Watson, home after an accident, to contact them.

Mr Watson was badly injured when his car was in collision with a telegraph pole in Grundisburgh on Thursday, December 6.

A motorist took him home, but his condition deteriorated and he was taken to hospital where he later died of his injuries.

The driver who took Mr Watson home has still not been traced, and Sgt Colin Teager, of Suffolk Police, said he could have valuable information.

"As a result of the appeals in the media a number of drivers have come forward to say they were in the area at the time but, as yet, the driver who stopped to help and then took Mr Watson home has not contacted us.

"We would renew our appeal for them to come forward – and we would still like to hear from anyone else who may have information which could help our enquiries," he said.

Anyone with information should contact the police traffic unit on 01473-613722.
