A woman was knocked unconscious after a car crash in the early hours of Sunday morning in Hitchin – which also saw a ‘group of people’ run away from the vehicle.
A grey Audi carrying at least four people rolled over at around 4am in St Michael’s Road and hit a tree – with a young woman treated at the scene after being knocked out.
The woman, believed to be in her late teens or early 20s, was then taken to the Lister Hospital in Stevenage.
A search of the area was carried out by police with assistance from the dog unit and a police helicopter, but no-one was found.
Police are currently trying to trace the owners of the car to establish whether it was taken without consent – possibly by joyriders.
