Police hunt driver who hit parked car, tree and bushes in late-night smash

Police are hunting a motorist after a parked car, tree and bushes were hit in a late-night smash. Officers were called out to Uttoxeter's Highwood Road where cops have been appealing for CCTV.

It represents yet another collision on the road. StokeonTrentLive reported how last month a car ploughed into a tree on the stretch before setting on fire with one woman taken to hospital.

The latest crash took place at some point between midnight and 3am on May 6 - with the damage spotted later in the morning.

A spokeswoman for Staffordshire Police said: "We were called at 8.40am on Monday 6 May to reports a car had collided with a parked car, a tree and bushes on Highwood Road, Uttoxeter. We’re keen to speak to anyone who saw what happened or those with any CCTV, dashcam or doorbell footage from the area at the time."

Witnesses are asked to call the force on 101 and quote 161 of May 6.
