Police appeal after car crashes into front garden

POLICE are appealing for witnesses to a collision which saw a car crash into the front garden of a house in Burwell, narrowly missing the property.

A second vehicle involved in the smash did not stop following the incident which happened at about 5.15pm on Friday (November 25) in Ness Road, at its junction with Buntings Path.

Officers are trying to trace the driver of the vehicle, described as a small burgundy car, possibly a hatchback, which left the scene heading in the direction of Newmarket Road or the Swaffhams following the incident.

The Hyundai Coupe left the road and went through a hedge into the front garden but the driver managed to avoid the house. The driver was not seriously injured but his car was badly damaged.

PC Chris Herring, from Ely Police Station, said: “The driver of the Hyundai managed to avoid the house but it could have been a lot more serious. There were people in at the time who came out after hearing the noise.

“I would like to speak to anyone who saw the collision take place and particularly the driver of the small burgundy car, which would have damage to its front near side.”

Anyone with information should contact PC Herring on 101.
