UK watchdog to probe holiday crash
A UK WATCHDOG is to investigate if police were pursuing the Vauxhall Vectra that crashed into the car carrying the holidaying Twomey family -- even though police insisted they were not involved in a pursuit.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) will probe the actions of the police and decisions made prior to the horrific head-on collision in Torquay last Friday, including whether or not an officer was chasing the car driven by Marik Wojciechowski.
Con (39) and Elber (36) Twomey remain in a critical condition in Derriford hospital following the crash that claimed the life of their 16-month-old boy Oisin, and their unborn child.
Mr Wojciechowski -- who has not yet been officially named by police -- apparently drove at high speed in his taxi into the path of the Twomey's car. He later died at Derriford Hospital.
