Inquiries after man drove into motorist
A MOTORIST needed hospital treatment after another driver rammed his car into him in a St George street.
Police are appealing for dashcam footage and witnesses after the incident in Hillside Road, which happened on October 4 between 11am and noon. Officers say a man driving a silver Vauxhall Insignia car drove towards another motorist, who had just got out of his car, three times, hitting him twice. The Insignia sped off on Air Balloon Road, leaving the victim in need of hospital treatment. He has since been discharged. A 22-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident. As the Voice went to print, police enquiries were still under way, with charges yet to be brought.
Det Insp Kristina Windsor said: “This incident could have been much worse and the victim was extremely lucky to escape with the injuries he did."
