Tesco Shopper Knocked Over After Row With Driver

Police are appealing for witnesses following an incident in a supermarket car park in Westcliff.

Officers attended the Tesco store in Prince Avenue, Westcliff, at just after 12:00 midday on Monday, December 22, following reports that a pedestrian had been in collision with a car. The 43 year-old man is thought to have had an argument with the driver of a silver or blue coloured Ford Mondeo car.

He was then in collision with the vehicle and was thrown to the floor. He suffered minor injuries which he received treatment for at the scene by ambulance crews.

The driver of the Mondeo is alleged to have left the scene without making an attempt to stop to see if the pedestrian was ok.

Investigating Officer Pc Alistair Sims of the Laindon Traffic Unit said:

"The car park would have been very busy with shoppers. We are keen to establish the identity of the driver of the Mondeo. He is described as a white man, aged in his 60s, of heavy build with a shaved, stubbly haircut and a round face.

It is believed there may have been a woman passenger in the front seat and also a passenger sitting in the back of the vehicle."

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Pc Alistair Sims at Laindon Traffic by calling Essex Police on 101.
