Driver Run Over By Own Car
Drivers are being reminded not to leave keys in their ignition after a man was runover by a thief who stole his car from outside his home in Stotfold.
Bedfordshire Police say the 54 year old had been pumping up the tyres on his blue Peugeot 308 Sport outside his home in Melbourne Close on Saturday 17 December 2011. He went into his house, leaving his keys in the ignition, and the driver's side door open.
When he went back out, he saw someone, possibly a woman, sitting in the driver's seat with the door closed. The offender then reversed the car and drove away, hitting the victim as he went.
The man suffered head injuries and concussion but remained conscious. He was taken to hospital for further examination and released later in the day.
The car had a 59 plate but the theft happened so quickly the man was unable to give a description of the offender.
DC Guy Steel-Jessop from Bedfordshire Police said "If anyone has any information then we are urging them to come forward. We are also reminding car owners not to leave their keys in the ignition when they are not inside the car. It gives thieves an opportunity to take the vehicle."
