A motorist who fled from the scene of a crash has yet to be located by police.

Householders on Montgomery Avenue in Lowestoft were awoken by dramatic scenes about 10.20pm on Tuesday as a VW Beetle Sport careered off the road and hit three walls and a vehicle.

With the walls of three houses significantly damaged, the VW Beetle Sport hit a lamppost and slightly damaged one car on its way down the road before it spun out of control and ploughed into a red Toyota Verso parked on a driveway.

Neighbours described how their houses shook during the crash, and with police still hunting the man who fled from the scene, a police spokesman said: “The driver of the vehicle remains outstanding. We are still trying to locate him.”

Anyone who witnessed the collision, or who has any information, should call Lowestoft police on 101, quoting crime reference 583 74/18.
