Witness plea in road accident

POLICE are investigating after a 4x4 driver ploughed into a van before speeding off down the road.

POLICE are investigating after a 4x4 driver ploughed into a van before speeding off down the road.

The two-vehicle collision happened last Wednesday, at around 12.30pm.

The smash occurred on the A452 Kenilworth Road, at the traffic island between Meriden and Hampton-in-Arden.

The collision forced the van - belonging to Midland Mobile Tyres - off the road.

Driver Anthony Wheeler, aged 30, was unable to get the full registration number of the 4x4.

The white Range Rover did not stop at the scene - racing off towards Balsall Common.

Ian Hart, owner of MMT, is urging people to call police if they have any useful information.

“The ambulance guy said that if the car had been going faster it could have been a lot more serious,” he said

“Anyone who got the number plate or has seen a car of this description with front-end damage should call police.”

And the crash could leave the Berkswell-based firm thousands of pounds out of pocket.

“We’re going to have problems with the insurance because the guy sped off and I need to get the van fixed,” added Mr Hart.

A West Midlands Police spokeswoman confirmed they were called to a no-stop collision.

If you can help the investigation, call the road traffic team, at Chelmsley Wood, on 0345 113 5000.
