Be on the lookout for a 'heavily damaged' black Ford, say police
ISLANDERS are being asked to be on the look-out for a heavily damaged black Ford following an accident at the weekend.
At around 9.30 am on Saturday, a silver Citroen Picasso was travelling along Route de St Aubin when it was involved in a collision with a black car – thought to have been either an older-style Fiesta or KA model – as it was exiting Rue de Galet.
The driver of the Ford, described as a woman in her 40s of medium build with light coloured hair, then drove off and is thought to have travelled up Mont Félard.
The 58-year-old man driving the Citroen had to be taken to hospital with minor injuries and was later released. His vehicle sustained heavy damage to one of its rear doors.
Officers from the States police have now issued an appeal for information and say that the Ford will have suffered significant damage to its front.
During the same weekend, on Sunday, a man had to be taken to hospital to be given stitches after the door of the blue Land Rover he was getting out of was hit by a 'white vehicle' – causing the door to ricochet into his face.
The white vehicle continued east towards the White Horse pub but did not stop.
Anyone who witnessed either collision or knows of a black Ford which has recently-caused damage to its front is asked to contact police on 612612 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
Information can also be submitted to Crimestoppers online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
