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.
