Appeal for witnesses to crash on A11 at Besthorpe

Officers are appealing for witnesses after a driver failed to stop following a crash on the A11 this morning.

The collision took place on the Norwich bound carriageway, just prior to the Besthorpe services, near Attleborough.

At about 10.30am, a grey or silver car, thought to be the size of a Ford Fiesta or Ford Focus, pulled out of a layby into the path of a silver Ford Galaxy and a white Vauxhall Corsa.

Both the Galaxy and the Corsa braked heavily and collided with each other.

The driver of the unidentified silver car is alleged to have waved at them and then drove away.
