POLICE have issued an appeal after a man and a toddler were in collision with a taxi outside the Princess Theatre in Torquay on Sunday night.
Two pedestrians, a three-year-old girl, and a man, aged 36, were injured when they were in collision with a silver coloured Ford Transit minibus outside the theatre just before 7pm.
The toddler suffered bruising to his face and the man was treated for broken bones to his face. He also received a head injury.
PC Ian Harvey of the serious collisions unit said: "This is the second collision at this location within four days in very similar circumstances
"It is thought people are crossing the central reservation and looking in the wrong direction believing the road lay out is still a dual carriageway. The road layout changed after the conclusion of the Rock Walk works."
A Torbay Council spokesman said they were aware of the two road traffic collisions that have occurred in Torbay Road in recent days. He said: "We monitor road traffic collision data, and we work in close partnership with officers from Devon and Cornwall Constabulary to see if any highway safety issues are identified."
Anyone who witnessed the collision or who saw either the pedestrian or minibus shortly before the incident is asked to call police on 101 quoting reference 753 of August 25.
