The BMW was involved in a hit and run accident on Thursday 21st July at 18:48 pm . The driver reversed from a side road (Delacourt Road) and into the side of my car when he lost control, he then drove away down Banchory Road. The driver resides in a flat/room about the Sun in the Sands pub. The garage owners were able to tell me his first name as they often see him driving dangerously out of Sun Lane. The Police and my insurance company have been informed and I have notified the DVLA. This vehicle needs to be taken off the road before the driver seriously injures someone.
