Police are appealing for witnesses to a road rage incident in which a driver punched a car, before then following the vehicle as it drove away, and colliding with it shortly afterwards. The incident took place earlier this month, on Sunday, May 19, in Weston-super-Mare, and involved a bronze Toyota Hilux and a black Peugeot 308.

Avon and Somerset Police shared that the driver of the Toyota exited his vehicle on Somerset Avenue, and punched the window of the Peugeot. The latter car then drove away, with the Toyota driver in pursuit, and the two cars collided on Elmham Way. The driver of the Toyota subsequently left the scene.

Police are asking people to come forward or share dashcam footage of the incident, which took place at approximately 11am. Anyone able to assist with police inquiries should contact 101 and quote the reference number 5224127930, or complete an online appeals form.
