Police investigate York collisions

York police are appealing for witnesses after two fail to stop collisions in the city.

The first occurred at around 4.15pm on Thursday 16 January 2014, when a vehicle hit a car parked on Beckfield Lane.

Due to debris left at the scene it is believed that the vehicle which caused the damage is a blue Ford Focus.

The second incident occurred at 3.20pm on Friday 17 January 2014, at the junction of Mount Vale and Knavesmire Road.

It involved a pedal cycle, which swerved to avoid a VW Golf which pulled out in front of it, and another vehicle. As a result of the collision the rider of the bike suffered minor injuries and the cycle was badly damaged.

PC Nicola Elliot, of York Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: If you witnessed either incident or can help to identify the driver of either the Ford Focus or VW Golf, I urge you to contact the police straight away.

I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who works for a vehicle repair shop who was asked to repair the body work of a Ford Focus and urge them to get in touch.

Anyone who can assist with rather of these enquiries should contact York police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Nicola Elliot. Alternatively, information can be emailed to
