Police investigate Catterick hit-and-run


11:53am 12th September 2011

Police investigating a hit-and-run collision near Catterick are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

At 9.50pm on Thursday 8th September 2011, a light-coloured Vauxhall Tigra travelling southbound on the A1 between Catterick North Interchange and Marne Barracks was hit by a red articulated vehicle pulling a blue trailer.

The Tigra spun across the carriageway before coming to a stop after hitting trees on the nearside verge. The other vehicle did not stop at the scene.

The driver of the car, a 25 year old woman from the Richmond area, suffered a minor head injury in the incident which was treated at the scene by paramedics.

Officers are appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision to contact them with information.

Traffic Constable Tony Leonard, of Richmond Roads Policing Group, said:

"Fortunately the driver of the Vauxhall Tigra only suffered a minor injury in the collision but she was left understandably shaken by the experience.

"I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision to come forward and tell us what they saw.

"I would also appeal to the driver of the articulated vehicle to do the right thing and contact the police so we can complete our investigations into the collision."

Anyone who can help the police with their enquiries is urged to contact TC Tony Leonard, of Richmond Roads Policing Group, on 0845 60 60 24 7.
