Cleveland Police are urging witness to a collision, in which a driver failed to stop, to come forward.

The incident occurred between the two roundabouts on the eastbound carriageway on the A1027 towards the A19, near Norton high street on Friday, April 29, at around 7.50am.

It involved a white Toyota Yaris and a red vehicle, which was possibly a Ford Kia.

Following the collision, the male driver of the red vehicle assisted the female driver of the Toyota Yaris by driving her vehicle, with her in it, to a bus stop on the westbound carriageway.

He left her there and walked back to his vehicle and drove off without leaving any details.

The female driver of the Yaris suffered minor injuries and an ambulance treated her at the scene. Her vehicle was damaged at the rear of it.

The red vehicle is described as small, with either a bold white stripe or two parallel stripes along the bonnet and over the roof. It is believed to have a 62 plate registration and is probably local to the area. It is believed that this vehicle will have damage to the front of it.

Police would like the driver of the red vehicle to come forward.

Anyone with information regarding the collision, or anyone who witnessed it, is asked to contact PC Andrew Overton from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit on the non-emergency number 101, quoting the event number 075555.
