A HOTEL worker seriously injured in a car crash which killed a young Blackpool woman has lost his fight for life.

Nathan Weston, 23, of South Shore, was one of seven people in an MG ZR when it hit a lamp-post on Fleetwood Road, Anchorsholme, at the junction with Kelso Avenue, in June.

His friend, 21-year-old Roseanna Cooper, died at the scene.

Mr Weston, who police today said worked at a Promenade hotel, was taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital suffering from a punctured lung.

He remained in the intensive care unit at the hospital until Monday when he died as a result of the injuries sustained in the collision.

The MG ZR was travelling towards Cleveleys when the crash happened at 5.45am on June 6.

A 20-year-old man from Pilling was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and drink driving.

He was released on police bail until September 14.

Residents have called for action at the section of road which they say is notorious with speeding cars and an accident black spot.

One neighbour had even raised the issue at Norbreck’s monthly Police and Community Together (PACT) meeting the night before the fatal crash.

Police have pledged to make motorists more speed aware in that area.
