There are concerns for the wellbeing of the driver of a dark coloured VW 54 plate Golf, which was involved in the collision in Hartlepool’s Westbrook Avenue at around 8.55pm on Saturday, August 1.
The Golf travelled from Southbrooke Avenue into Westbrooke Avenue and police say it then collided with a white Renault Trafic van driven by a 29 year-old man.
The Golf then left the carriageway and struck a garden wall. Two passengers, one male and one female, both in their 20s, suffered injuries and are still in hospital. The driver left the scene.
The driver of the Renault suffered minor injuries and was treated at the University Hospital of North Tees, then released.
Initial police inquiries suggest the driver of the Golf suffered head/facial injuries and is urged to come forward and get checked out.
Police are also appealing for anyone who might know the driver’s identity to speak to them.
Cleveland Police can be contacted by ringing 101, quoting Event 124560.
The same applies if you witnessed to the collision, or have any dash cam or private CCTV which may have captured the car travelling from Brenda Road towards Hartlepool town centre, Oxford Road, Catcote Road, or in Southbrooke or Westbrooke Avenues.
