POLICE are appealing for information following a road crash in north-east Essex in which a motorist sped away from the scene, leaving a person from Colchester with a hefty repair bill.
The collision happened in Harwich when a distinctive red Ford KA struck a parked green Vauxhall Vectra head-on on Parkeston Road at 5am on Wednesday, March 20. The driver of the Ford, which has a partial registration AX12, failed to remain at the scene or report it, and instead choose to drive off.
Investigating Officer, Pc Adam Westall, said: “We realise that this crash happened some time ago, but Harwich is a small area and the vehicle is distinctive in colour, relatively new and would have been extensively damaged.
“We’re appealing to any skilled mechanics in the area or Ford dealerships in north Essex who have had to repair this KA in the last month. It may well be that the car has yet to be repaired and is still being driven with the damage, in which case we would like to hear of its whereabouts.”
Officers believe the KA would have had some green paint transfer from the Vectra it struck. The Vectra’s owner, who lives in Colchester, had been visiting relatives in Harwich at the time.
Anyone with information in connection with this road crash is urged to contact investigating officers at Clacton police station on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
