Appeal for help to trace driver of vehicle that failed to stop following a collision on the Isle of Wight
Police are appealing for help to trace a driver of a vehicle which failed to stop following a collision on the Isle of Wight.
Officers were called to reports of a collision involving two vehicles on Shorwell Shute, in Shorwell, at 7.30am on Bank Holiday Monday.
One of the vehicles failed to stop at the scene.
The other car, a Ford Ranger, suffered damage to the offside of the vehicle and the 58-year-old male driver sustained injuries to his face and arm.
The vehicle which failed to stop is described as being a black 4×4 type, similar to a Mitsubishi Warrior, Mitsubishi L200, Nissan Navara or Ford Ranger.
It would have suffered damage to the front and offside and the driver was a man.
PC Dominic Green said:
“I would appeal to the driver of the vehicle that failed to stop to contact us immediately.
“We would also like to hear from anyone who has seen a black utility-type vehicle which has recently been damaged.”
