Dan Walker reaches out to driver involved in horror crash to ‘resolve out of court’ | The Sun

DAN Walker has reached out to the driver involved in their horror crash so that they can ‘resolve it out of court’.

The newsreader suffered nasty injuries after a car crash left him covered in blood earlier this week.

Dan, 45, was travelling on his bike in Sheffield travelling to catch a train when he collided with a car on Monday 20 February.

The star later shared pictures of his "mess" of a face on social media, admitting he was "glad to be alive".

He is unable to remember details of the event and would like to talk to the driver involved.

Writing in his latest column with The Times, Dan said: "There is still nothing there, which a large part of me is very happy about.

"I can't go into details at the moment because the police might take another week or so to publish their report but, after talking to Conor (a police officer), I am confident that I am not to blame and I hope this can be resolved outside the courts.

"I know I could have died but I also know how easy it is to make a mistake, even when you're trying to be careful.

"I can't really remember what they (the driver) looked like, from that moment they were looking over me as I came round, but I do recall that they looked deeply distressed and I imagine it is all they are thinking about at the moment."

On Friday the journalist issued a health update.

He has been recovering at home since the crash on Monday.

Dan, who left BBC news to join Channel 5 last year, wrote on Instagram: "Winnie hasn’t left my side this week. She’s the best.

"2 things happened today…

"1. I had my first solid food since Monday
2. I ordered a new cycling helmet

"Thank you for all the lovely messages & for asking how I’m doing. The swelling is going down but the body is still aching."

The day before Dan revealed he is unable to use his left hand after the collision, which left him fearing he was going to die.

"I was just thinking about tea but can't do much with my left hand at the minute so these babies have arrived at just the right time," he wrote on social media.

The smash was captured on dashcam footage.
