Police have been informed and offered CCTV video of a hit-and-run car crash which occurred at around 16:00 yesterday in Wordsworth Avenue, Penarth.
First reports said a car had collided with the wall of a house in Penarth near the “S” bend in the vicinity of the local Catholic Church, but further information has now come in from PDN correspondents to update the original story.
Eyewitnesses say that car that hit the wall in Wordsworth Avenue had actually been parked up at the roadside – but was struck by a speeding silver BMW.
The BMW is said to have come around the bend by the Catholic Church so fast that it hit the parked car – shunting it 15 to 20 feet from its stationary position, up onto the pavement and into a wall.
One witness says the damaged BMW, with three people inside , then drove off, but was immediately abandoned in Mountjoy Place. Its driver and two passengers were filmed on CCTV and are said to have been identified.
Another witness says the police have not yet made contact with person whose car was damaged by the speeding BMW .
