Driver ‘tries to hit’ pedestrians in Immingham…twice

This story is over

A man and a woman had a lucky escape when a car reportedly mounted the kerb and almost hit them in Immingham.

The same driver is believed to have driven a silver Audi A4 towards the male pedestrian again on the same road later the same evening.

The man was walking with a woman on the pavement on Pelham Road at around 8.30pm on Thursday, September 26.

Nobody was injured in either incident and the two men are believed to be known to each other, police said.

A police investigation is underway and a man was arrested in connection with the incidents.

He has since been released under investigation whilst police enquiries continue.

Police are keen to speak to an elderly man, who was in the area at the time and may have witnessed the incident, and any other witnesses.

Anyone with information should contact Humberside Police on 101 quoting log number 629 of September 26.

It can also be reported through the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
