Witness call after drivers fail to stop after collisions
10:34am Wednesday 22nd January 2014 in News
DETECTIVES investigating two collisions at which vehicles failed to stop have urged witnesses to get in touch.
The first occurred at about 4.15pm on Thursday, January 16, when a vehicle hit a car parked in Beckfield Lane.
A police spokesman said debris left at the scene had led police to believe the vehicle which caused the damage was a blue Ford Focus.
The second incident happened at 3.20pm on Friday, January 17, at the junction of Mount Vale and Knavesmire Road.
It involved a pedal cycle, which swerved to avoid a VW Golf which pulled out in front of it, and another vehicle. As a result of the collision the cyclist suffered minor injuries and the cycle was badly damaged.
PC Nicola Elliot, of York Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “If you witnessed either incident or can help to identify the driver of either the Ford Focus or VW Golf, I urge you to contact the police straight away. I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who works for a vehicle repair shop who was asked to repair the body work of a Ford Focus and urge them to get in touch.”
