AFTER losing control of his car and damaging two parked vehicles, 20-year-old Ryan Scott left the crash scene.
But two witnesses saw the crash in Church Lane at Littleport, and on Thursday Scott appeared before magistrates.
Scott, of Limes Close, Littleport, admitted failing to stop after the accident on June 11, and driving without due care and attention.
"He lost control of his vehicle when he got to a sharp bend, and collided with a Volkswagen Golf," said prosecutor Laura Mardell. "That car was then pushed forward, and hit a Peugeot 206."
