A WAGON crashed into the back of a car on the St Helens Linkway before being driven away from the scene, say police.

The collision happened near the roundabout, close to the Glass Horse pub last week on Tuesday, November 14, at around 5.45pm.

The driver told the Star that the collision happened as he was driving home after picking up his girlfriend.

“On Tuesday, November 14, I had picked my girlfriend up from town and we were driving back,” he said.

“I approached the roundabout where the Glass Horse is, there was a car in front and I went on the inside lane towards the Glass Horse.”

He said that he felt the car being “hit from the back”.

“I looked in my rear view mirror and all I could see was the grilles of the wagon, it was pushing me. First of all, I thought maybe the driver had a heart attack or something.”

The driver said he managed to change lanes and made his way to the Glass Horse car park.

“I turned round, I didn’t know where to go. I went towards Sutton Road in the hope that the wagon driver had pulled over.

“But there was nothing, so I just drove home and tried to sort the damage on the car.”

The driver said he had suffered from "whiplash" from the collision and that his partner hasn't been able to properly sleep since.

He said he hopes any witnesses or people who were in the area who have dashcam footage can come forward to help identify the wagon driver.

The incident was reported to the police, who have issued an appeal for information.

A Merseyside Police spokeswoman said: “We received a report of a fail-to-stop collision at the junction of St Helens Linkway and Sutton Road in St Helens.
