Hit and run driver adjusts mirror and drives on

POLICE are seeking witnesses after a pedestrian was struck by a van while walking along London Road, in Braintree.

The man was on the footpath near Marshalls Park, at around 4pm yesterday, when a small white van drove onto the footpath and struck him with its wing mirror, causing it to fold inwards. Fortunately the man was not seriously hurt and did not require hospital treatment.

The van went to the end of the road where the driver got out and repositioned his mirror before driving off. The driver of the van is described as being white with shaven brown hair.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or can identify the driver is asked to contact the Dunmow road policing unit on 0300 333 4444.
