The Chronicle - - News -

PO­LICE are on the hunt for a driver who smashed into a parked car in a res­i­den­tial es­tate and then drove off.

It is be­lieved the crash oc­curred at around 3.30am on Sun­day, dam­ag­ing an Audi A1.

The white car was parked in Fell­way, Pel­ton Fell, near Ch­ester-le-Street, when it was shunted down the street by the driver who then made off.

Pic­tures show ex­ten­sive dam­age caused to the driver’s side of the car but po­lice are yet to catch the cul­prit.

Of­fi­cers are now ap­peal­ing for any wit­nesses to the crash to come for­ward and help with their in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

A spokesper­son for Durham Con­stab­u­lary said: “Durham Con­stab­u­lary are ap­peal­ing for the driver of a large black ve­hi­cle which is be­lieved to have been in the area at the time of the crash to come for­ward.”
