Appeal for information after substantial damage caused to car in Ballymena hit-and-run


A Ballymena woman has appealed for information after her car, parked outside her home, was substantially damaged by another vehicle who failed to stop or report the damage.


The victim of the hit-and-run, who doesn't wish to be named, lives on the Cullybackey Road in the town where residents of the row of terraced houses have to park their cars on the roadside.



The incident occurred yesterday afternoon, Thursday 22 September.


The woman told Love Ballymena:


"I was disgusted when I seen the damage that had been caused to my car. There was no note, no one came to my door - if they would have I would have been more understanding.


"I've literally just replaced the tyres on the car, and a back light that was damaged previously by someone else had hit and drove on. I've also had to replace my wing mirror before. But the mirror and light didn't annoy me so much as this has.


"I fixed the other things myself but this is just too big of a job."



Police in Ballymena are currently investigating the reported incident. A police spokesperson said:


"Police received a report of a hit-and-run road traffic collision on the Cullybackey Road in Ballymena shortly before yesterday, Thursday 22nd September.

 

"It was reported that sometime between 1pm and 3.45pm a vehicle parked in the area had been struck and damage caused.

 

"Enquiries are ongoing and anyone with any information about this incident should call 101, quoting reference number 453 22/09/22."
