Police are appealing for witnesses after a white transit-style van hit a pedestrian in Colchester and drove away.

At around 5pm on Tuesday, November 14, the white van struck a Tesco home delivery van on Old Heath Road, also hitting the delivery driver.

The driver of the white van then drove away without stopping.

The victim, a 31-year-old man, was taken to hospital following the collision but is not believed to have been seriously injured.

Witnesses to the incident or anyone who saw a white transit-style van in the area around the time of the collision with damage to the nearside of the vehicle, including a missing wing mirror, are asked to contact Pc Robert Elvin at Stanway Roads Policing Unit on 101, quoting incident 721 of November 14.

Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or fill in its online crime reporting form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org
