Witness appeal following road incident in Telford

Officers are appealing for witnesses to an incident in which a car is believed to have collided with a man in Telford.

As two cars - thought to be a dark coloured BMW and a silver Ford Focus - were travelling up Gower Street, St George's, it is reported that eggs were thrown at the Ford Focus.

When the cars approached the roundabout with Church Street and Stafford Street shortly after midnight on Friday (25 May), the driver of the Ford Focus is reported to have got out his car and a collision occurred.

The vehicle failed to stop and drove off towards Oakengates while the man suffered non-life changing leg injuries and was taken to hospital.

Investigating officers are asking any members of the public who witnessed the incident or who were in the area at the time to come forward.

They are also keen to speak to the driver and occupants of the BMW as they believe they could have information that could help with the investigation.

Anyone with information should call West Mercia Police on 101 quoting incident number 3S of 25 May.

Issued: 12.45pm, Thursday 31 May, Laura Maltby, Corporate Communications
