Police appeal following Malton collision


2:51pm 24th January 2012

Police are renewing their appeal for a driver to come forward following a road traffic collision in Malton.

It occurred between 3.25pm and 3.40pm on Thursday 22nd December 2011, as an 89-year-old woman crossed Finkle St from the market place. As she walked behind the car, parked close to Escape hairdressers, it reversed slowly, knocking her down.

Following information received from a member of the public police are able to give a more detailed description of the vehicle involved. It is believed to be a silver Vauxhall Vectra.

As well as the man who was driving the car, there was a woman in the front passenger seat. Both the driver and passenger are described as being in their 20s.

The woman who was injured has now moved into a residential home as a result of the incident.

Traffic Constable Paul Merritt, of North Yorkshire Police's Roads Policing Group, said:

"I would like to thank the witnesses for coming forward and providing the additional information about the vehicle involved in this collision.

"I urge the driver, or his passenger, to come forward and contact the police as soon as possible as I need to speak to them."

Anyone who can help the police with their enquiries is asked to contact TC Paul Merritt on 101. Press option 2 and ask for Paul Merritt.
