The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS - By JOHN WAKE­FIELD

A TELECOM­MU­NI­CA­TIONS worker is in hos­pi­tal af­ter suf­fer­ing se­ri­ous in­juries in a hit and run crash in Finchampstead.

Now, Thames Val­ley Po­lice has launched an ap­peal for wit­nesses to come for­ward.

The in­ci­dent took place around 1.15pm on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 29 on the A327 Read­ing Road near its junc­tion with New Mill Road.

Po­lice said that a white Ford Tran­sit van was in­volved in a col­li­sion with a white Citroen Ber­lingo van and a Ford Mon­deo car, be­fore col­lid­ing with a 49-yearold who was work­ing on a com­mu­ni­ca­tions box at the side of the road.

The man sus­tained se­ri­ous leg in­juries and was taken to hos­pi­tal.

The driv­ers of the Citroen and Ford Mon­deo re­quired hos­pi­tal treat­ment for mi­nor in­juries.

The oc­cu­pants of the Ford Tran­sit, three white men, then fled the scene on foot in the di­rec­tion of New Mill Road.

The ve­hi­cle was left at the scene.

In­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cer PC Jen­nifer Lau­rie, of the Joint Op­er­a­tions Unit for Roads Polic­ing, said: “The white Ford Tran­sit van was seen be­fore the col­li­sion trav­el­ling in Park Lane, Finchampstead.

“I would like to speak to any­one with CCTV in the area or who has dash-cam footage who could pro­vide vi­tal in­for­ma­tion to our on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”

Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion should con­tact the 24-hour Thames Val­ley Po­lice en­quiry cen­tre on 101 quot­ing the ref­er­ence ‘43180330417’.

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for the pub­lic to help them trace three men fol­low­ing a hit and run on the A327 Read­ing Road
