Was it you who drove into car?

This Is Wiltshire: Emily Edwards Buy this photo Emily Edwards

A MOTORIST is appealing for the driver who skidded into her parked car during the snow last week to come forward.

Emily Edwards, 23, was getting ready for work at her home in Haydon End on Friday, January 25, when a man driving a dark coloured people carrier or 4x4 smashed into the passenger door of her Toyota Yaris.

Emily, who is saving money for her wedding later this year, is appealing for the driver to come forward.

“I was drying my hair when I heard a bang outside. It was about 8.15am. I looked out the window and saw a people carrier or 4x4 and a guy getting out. He looked at the cars and the damage,” said Emily.

“I got my coat on and ran downstairs but by the time I got there he had driven off. You could see the car tracks around the corner where they had gone from one side of the road to the other.

“I have looked out for the car since but I haven’t seen it yet.”

The incident has caused about £1,500 worth of damage to Emily’s 2011 Toyota Yaris, which Emily bought for £13,000.

“It was gutting when I saw it. I think the other car will have been damaged too. My passenger door is entirely crumpled, all the way from the bottom to the top, and the wheel arch is crumpled too,” she said.

“I imagine the other car must have fairly significant damage too.

“Where we live is a road only local residents would drive through. It’s not a main road so I imagine they live locally,” she said.

Emily, who uses her car every day to get from Maybold Crescent to Marlborough, said the man was in his 30s and had dark hair.

She is hoping other people may have witnessed the incident.

She has contacted police and her insurance company.

“I don’t normally leave my car there. We have got a drive but I left it on the side of the road so it would be easy for me to go to work in the morning,” she said.

A Wiltshire Police spokesman confirmed they were investigating.

Witnesses or anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Alternatively, to get in touch with Emily about the incident call Adver reporter Emma Dunn on 01793 501797.

Plenty of scumbags cause damage like the above. Goes on in car parks all the time and wing mirrors get smashed off regularly too. When people have insurance there is no excuse. I even had some cretin crash into me then get a mate to lie and say he was a witness to try to get off liability. So many complete arses on the roads.

Davey is spot, there are many scumbags around who do this type of thing.

We've been the victim of a few hit and runs over the years luckily only minor damage each time.

If the statistics are to be believed there are a lot of drivers out there without insurance.

Further more due to the ambulance chasing culture that has come about, insurance premiums increase significantly even after minor claims.

Why single out Polish? Before you start, no I'm not Polish, nor have I any Polish relatives, but there are plenty of so-called 'indigenous' folk who also drive around without tax, insurance or license.

For pity's sake, mate, think before you type. What has being Polish, or not, got to do with anything? This story has got nothing to do with how much she spent on her car or if she's getting married. Regardless of those things, she has been shafted by a coward who is trying to avoid liability for his/her actions. nothing more, nothing less. Personally, I hope the culprit has a conscience and gets in touch pronto so she can be fairly compensated for something that was not her fault in any way. Obviously.

Maybe she can afford to buy a car and save for her wedding - that's what people do. And what's with the "Polish" comment? Sounds racist to me.

On topic, shame that this guy did this; I hope he owns up but I wouldn't hold your breath sadly.

Come on think , yeh ? Where was the car parked ? In the road very vulnerable and probably in a narrow road too. If she really valued her car so much she should have reversed into her drive ready to depart easily, simple ! The insurance companies ask where you keep your car and that is one of the questions, drive or road. Some people actually use their garages for the car , but not many these days.

I'm not sure I believe this story. I think there are several possibilities.

1) She fell on the door and it crumbled
2) she sat down in the passenger side and started leaning towards the other side
3) She was hungry and decided to eat her car, but regretted it.

Either way, if we'd lowered the legal drinking age, this would never have happened.

May not be illegal but it could cause a heck of a problem with the insurance if she has said on the proposal form it's parked on her drive overnight.

I really don't understand what that has to do with this? Always big talk about how people in society do not take responsibility for their actions and this is a prime example. The driver crashed into her car and drove off knowing he had caused damage taking no responsibility and some people are trying to blame the young girl who is the innocent party with comments like "She shouldn't have been parked on the road"
The same people who would be outraged if this had happened to them, it makes me laugh!

Although I do feel for her I do agree with the other comments about parking on the road. If she'd put on the drive it wouldn't of been in harms way in the first place. Living in the area it drives me crazy seeing cars more abandoned than parked where ever they like. I'd hate to see what happens if an ambulance or fire engine ever needs to get through in some cases! If you have a drive, use it! You've paid for it!

House on the hill, take your nasty comments elsewhere, not relevant and quite pathetic.
If people know the area they'll know there is little space to park cars. Hers is one of many parked curbside, doesn't mean the person who hit it can just drive off.
Her insurers are aware where it is parked. Her fiancé normally uses the drive, but again that doesn't mean someone can hit hers and drive off.
And she can afford the car because she worked very hard for it, as she is doing to save for her wedding.
There seems to be a lot of negative comments just because someone is seeking help regarding a wrong doing.

Well I'm equally offended. There is no excuse for people who use offensive then claim it was a 'joke'. Trouble is, most trolls would be afraid to say their silly comments to someone's face. The lady's car has been damaged and people feel free to comment on her physique? Grow up!!!
Who is joking? She's massive!
And you're a fool! Like I said, grow up! No further discussion.
Will you continue if I offer to treat you to some of your favourite food from Gregs?

Be careful when you leave though - don't walk into any parked cars

Well it's a particularly internet thing isn't it? I wouldn't call them a 'troll' to their face, no. I would however have a word with them about their behaviour. I don't have an iPhone either, so don't make assumptions.

Because you cant help being born somewhere. You can help yourself by not eating, though.

Mocking someone for something they cant choose isn't nice. Mocking someone because they're so lazy and disgusting that they eat too much food and don't do any exercise and are perfectly content being a slob is fine in my eyes.

If you are offended by it then don't be fat. Simple. You can change it. If someone took the mick out of my hairstyle and it upset me that much I'd get rid of my huge pink mohawk and go for a smarter number.

All this talk of being fat is making me hungry, might have to go and have a horse burger from the local stables!

Must get my bumper fixed on my 4x4 on the way, someone parked their car on the road and not in their parking space because they are too bloody lazy to walk round to their door the other day and it just come out and hit me from nowhere!

You shouldn't make fun of fat people, they've got enough on their plate.

Ohhhh yeaaahhhh I went there.

And you clearly can't help your narrow minded, ill informed, disgusting attitude. Is it okay to mock you because you can help it, perhaps your ingnorance stems from a low IQ,or does it have something to do with the way you were raised, perhaps your parents were as ignorant as you?

How amazing that you know the life story and medical history of every person that is overweight.

House on the hill, take your nasty comments elsewhere, not relevant and quite pathetic

For god's sake lighten up. Compared to some of the programmes on TV that pass for entertainment, are watched by millions and win countless awards despite being complete tasteless and obnoxious, that was very mild indeed.

Yes the guy is a complete toe rag, but only one of many and yes like everyone I have more than my fair share of car park "incidents" so i do know what it was like.
