Teen ‘shaken’ after Wragby Road hit and run

Teen’s car is a write-off

A 19-year-old man was left shaken after a hit and run crash in Lincoln earlier this month.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the ‘non-stop collision’, which took place at around 7.25pm at the junction between Queensway and Wragby Road, Lincoln, on July 27.

A light green/grey coloured Rover 25 reportedly collided with a red Skoda Rapid before driving away from the scene.

Nobody was injured as a result of the crash, police said.

Sandra Petty told The Lincolnite that her 19-year-old son, who was driving the red Skoda Rapid, was left “shaken”.

She said: “My 19-year-old son Stephen was driving on Friday, July 27 when he got hit by another car, which drove off.

“It was at the crossroad of Wragby Road, Lee Road and Queensway near Christ Hospital School.

“The car which hit him was an old Rover 25 and it was a light green/grey colour.

“My son’s car is a write off, he’s only 19 and now he has to pay off a car he can’t drive. He was shaken.”

Stephen added that the driver of the Rover is in his late 40s/early 50s.

He said: “It is frustrating. I’ve got gap insurance, but a high excess, so depending on when it is sorted my insurance could go through the roof.

“I am not comfortable driving it for any lengthy journeys at the moment due to the damage on the vehicle.”

Stephen and his parents are also eager to hear from a witness who stopped his blue coloured Nissan Qashqai after the incident and offered to follow the other car, but they haven’t heard from him since.

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or via email at [email protected] quoting incident number 502 of July 27.
