Edenbridge: Cars damaged in hit and run

By Natalie Tipping

A driver is alleged to have driven through a fence and damaged a number of cars in a private car park, before fleeing the scene.

Residents on a private estate in Edenbridge were left shocked after finding their cars smashed up.

Stephanie Griffin, whose car was damaged, said: "We went out to the back car park immediately after the incident, where there is private residential parking.

"The area is fully enclosed, but someone came through one cul-de-sac and straight through the fence, hitting two cars leaving mine as a write-off and another severely damaged.

"They fled instantly, but in reversing they hit a house, leaving a large dent."

The residents later found part of a Mazda vehicle, which they believe may have fallen off after the incident.

The car knocked down a fence and hit a number of cars.

A Kent Police spokesman said: "Kent Police was called at 7.54pm on Saturday 7 October 2017 regarding a report that a grey saloon car had collided with two cars and a wall in a car park in St Johns Way, Edenbridge. The driver reportedly left the area without leaving any details.

"Officers attended the scene where no injuries were reported. Enquiries are on-going to locate the driver and their car, which would have received damage to the front."
