Police are investigating and appealing for the public's help following a hit and run collision which occurred on Wednesday evening, 16 August, on the North Coast.

Inspector Brogan said:

"Following a report made to police at around 7.20pm, officers attended the scene where it is believed that a blue BMW 5 series car collided head-on with a blue Vauxhall Astra car, causing extensive damage to both vehicles.

"When officers arrived, there was no-one in the blue BMW car, but found a man and a woman located in the blue Astra, with the driver having to be taken to hospital for his injuries. Thankfully the man's injuries are not believed to be life threatening, but this collision could have been a lot worse.
