A driver was captured by a police dog at the weekend after fleeing following a crash on the Norfolk-Suffolk border.
Officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk Road Policing team said they were called to a single vehicle crash on the A146/A143 roundabout in Stockton, near Beccles, in the early hours of this morning.
They said that the occupants of the vehicle had abandoned the car and run off across fields.
However, police dog Ozzy was deployed to hunt down the driver, who was found two miles away.
A spokesman for Norfolk Police said the driver was not arrested, but was interviewed at the scene of the crash.
The file is set to be passed to the Crown Prosecution Service to decide whether court proceedings are started.
