Woman injured during fail to stop near Chippenham

Alert message sent 27/11/2018 09:44:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We are appealing for any witnesses to a fail to stop incident just outside Chippenham to come forward. 

At approximately 3.55pm on 26 November, a silver Vauxhall Zafira was travelling from Colerne to Ford when a vehicle travelling in the opposite direction on the wrong side of the road, caused the driver of the Zafira (a woman in her 40s) to take evasive action, causing the vehicle to slide on mud and subsequently flip. 

PC Chloe Jenkins said: "The driver was travelling with her two young children at the time. She suffered injuries to her head, spine and hand and was taken to the Royal United Hospital in Bath. The children are not believed to have been injured but would have been understandably shocked and upset.

"The driver of the second vehicle did not stop and made off from the scene towards Colerne.

"I don't think it is possible that the driver of the second vehicle would have been unaware of the result of their actions."

The offending vehicle is described as a white van or small motorhome/caravan. 

"Lots of people were using the road and picking children up from school at the time of the incident so they may have witnessed something," said PC Jenkins.

Anyone with information, or dash cam footage, should call 101 and quote crime reference number 54180112246.
