A driver who left the scene of a crash in which a woman was injured while checking on the condition of a deer, has been traced by police.
An elderly man and woman were travelling in a grey Volvo V50 estate along the B1156, near Blakeney, between 5pm and 6.30pm on Saturday, December 8 when the car was in collision with a deer, near to the junction with Galley Hill Farm.
The elderly woman got out of the car to check on the deer and was subsequently involved in a collision with another vehicle, causing her to fall over.
The occupants of the second car stopped at the scene to check on the welfare of the woman but left a short time later.
The woman was then taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital where her injuries were found to be more serious than originally suspected.
