Police have appealed to the public to help them trace an uninsured car after a crash in Lilley left a man with a head injury and dislocated shoulder.

The crash – as previously reported by the Comet – happened on West Street in the village at around 3.15pm on Wednesday, March 30.

A blue Ford Focus, with the registration EN05 KXY, was involved in a shunt with a white Astra van from a specialist property care and maintenance business called Acorn Preservation Company.

The van driver, believed to be aged 54, suffered a head injury and a disolated shoulder.

The blue Ford Focus drew alongside the white van and the two drivers exchanged some words, after which the blue car drove off.

PC Steve Penhall, who is investigating the incident, said: “This was a nasty collision which has left the driver with painful injuries which will take time to recover from.

“We now know that the Focus is not insured, has no valid MOT and is registered to its previous keeper only – so we do not know who the driver is.

“We believe that it has links to Luton and may have been seen in the Cannon Lane area of the town around an hour after the collision took place.

“If you know the driver of this vehicle, or know where a blue Ford Focus with the registration plate EN05 KXY is parked, I would urge you to contact police immediately as the vehicle is not roadworthy.”

Contact police by calling 101, quoting ISR 451 of March 30.
