  • The collision occurred on the southbound carriageway.

  • Two vehicles were involved.

  • The occupants of one of the vehicles fled the scene.

Police are appealing for witnesses and information following a collision on A10 yesterday (Tuesday 8 June).

The incident occurred on the southbound carriageway, between Hoddesdon and Cheshunt, shortly before midday.

A Volkswagen Touran was seen to travel the wrong way down the carriageway before colliding with a Mercedes A180.The occupants of the VW, believed to have been three men, then fled the scene. It was discovered that the vehicle had been stolen.

The driver of the Mercedes, a man aged in his 80s, was taken to hospital, but his injuries were not deemed to be life-threatening.

Sergeant Nick Kane, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, said: “Thankfully no one was seriously injured during the incident, but it could easily have been a very different story.

“Despite an extensive search involving officers, the dog unit and the police helicopter, we were unable to trace the occupants of the VW. However, our enquiries are still continuing.

“As part of the investigation we’re asking anyone who saw the collision, or the events leading up to it, to please contact police. We’re particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have captured dash cam footage.

“Lastly, I am appealing for anyone who may have come across possibly three men acting suspiciously in the area, around the time stated, to please get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to please email Sgt Nick Kane.
