She said: “The way this person was driving in a 30 astounds me.
“It was a fairly straight piece of road and he was doing about 70mph on the wrong side of the road. To top it off rather than stop he drove off even faster than he came.
“We are very lucky to have suffered minor injuries with cuts and bruises. But it has written off our car, a car I need to got to work as a key worker.
“Has anyone noticed their neighbour has covered/garaged their grey Audi TT? Or anyone know the numberplate or owner of this car, or have CCTV footage covering the road area from Fleggburgh to Caister?”
