Officers investigating a fail-to-stop collision in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.

At around 9.50pm on Friday 21 December 2018 a collision occurred on Wimborne Road in Kinson, near to the junction with Durdells Avenue. It involved a green Vauxhall Viva and another vehicle, described as a white Ford Transit style van with a registration number beginning H, which failed to stop at the scene. The van had no windows but two doors at the back.

The driver is described as white, aged between 40 and 50 years old, had stubble and wore a black beanie hat, a black jumper and a black body warmer. The van would have sustained damage to the front.

Police Constable Chloe Chapman, of Bournemouth police, said: “We are carrying out enquiries into this incident and I am appealing for any witnesses or anyone who may have captured it on dashcam to contact us.

“I am also keen to hear from anyone who may have come across a van matching the description given that has sustained damage in unexplained circumstances.”
