Family left shaken following hit and run

A family have been left shaken following a hit and run incident in Styal on Thursday, 21st January.

Sara Yarwood was travelling along Station Road with her three children, aged 12, 10 and 6, her 71 year old mum and their dog when they were struck by a car which had veered over their side of the road.

There were two witnesses to the incident which occurred just outside Styal Lodge Golf Club at 6.09pm.

Sara told wilmslow.co.uk ""A witness thinks the offending car was a dark Jaguar F-Pace which had been all over the road and had had several near misses before hitting us.

"It was coming towards us straddling the white line, I pulled as close to kerb as I could get. It didn't even try and change direction and took out the whole side of my car. The fire brigade had to cut door open."

The police, ambulance service and an air ambulance attended along with Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Whilst none of the passengers were seriously injured they have all been left very shaken, including the family dog who has been quiet since.

A police spokesperson said "At 6.12pm on Friday 21 January police were called to reports of a collision on Station Road, Styal. Officers attended the scene and found there had been a collision between a dark Jaguar 4x4 and a silver Peugeot 5008.

"The driver of the Jaguar failed to stop at the scene.

"Paramedics attended the scene and there were no reports of any injuries."

Enquiries in relation to the incident are ongoing and anyone with any information is asked to contact Cheshire Police on 101 quoting IML 900314.
