Police are appealing for information after a car crashed into a house in St Neots and the driver left the scene without stopping.

The blue Mercedes car hit the house in Berkley Street, Eynesbury, at about 5.15pm on Thursday and eyewitnesses have told The Hunts Post it drove away at speed.

“The bonnet flipped up and over the windscreen, but it continued to drive on recklessly, it was like something out of movie. There are still bits of the Mercedes and oil on the ground,” said a bystander who asked not to be identified.

Unconfirmed reports suggest the occupants of the vehicle were involved in an altercation in Potton Road some time later that evening.

Anyone with information regarding this incident should call police on 101 quoting CC-22062017-0463 or visit www.contactcambspolice.uk/Report/.

Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111 or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
