We are appealing for witnesses following a road traffic incident in Hythe yesterday evening (Friday 10 February).
At approximately 10pm a car attempted to overtake another vehicle on Fawley Road southbound, near to the junction of Fleuret Close, and almost became involved in a head-on collision with a police car driving in the opposite direction as a result.
The police car activated its emergency warning equipment and attempted to stop the vehicle involved, however it drove away at speed down Fawley Road towards the Hardley roundabout. An area search was conducted however the car, described as a dark coloured SUV style vehicle, was not located.
We are conducting enquiries to locate the vehicle involved and are now appealing to the public for assistance.
Were you in the area at the time? Did you see what happened? Perhaps you saw a dark coloured vehicle driving at speed in the area? Do you have dash cam footage that may assist our investigation?
Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting reference 44230057577.
