The incident occurred yesterday between 3 p.m. and 3.45 p.m. at junction of Thrale Road and Penwortham Road, just down the road from Penwortham Primary School. The 20 year old man killed was a former pupil at Graveney school.
A local resident has been quoted in the media as saying "Things like this don't happen around here." However, the location of yesterday's incident is just one street away from Welham Road where an incident last summer involved a 75-year-old man killed by being run over and two other men being stabbed.
