A MOTORIST failed to stop at the scene of a crash on the A134 at Shimpling.


At approximately 4.45pm on Thursday, a blue Mazda with a black vinyl roof collided with a silver Vauxhall Corsa, causing the driver to leave the road and hit a tree.

The driver sustained minor back injuries and an ambulance attended.

The Mazda then drove off towards Bury and was seen shortly after 5pm driving erratically on the A134 in Ingham.

Police would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident. Calls should be made to PC Mel Hayward from Sudbury on 101.
