Hertfordshire Police hunt driver

Sergeant Sam Cordingley from the Roads Policing Unit is leading the investigation into the death of 16-year-old Fazan Ahmed.

We are actively seeking the driver of the blue car and we would ask that they make contact with police as a matter of urgency. We need to speak to you to understand what happened.

The vehicle we are seeking is likely to have a broken windscreen, as well as other damage so I’d like to ask for the public’s help in locating the vehicle. I would urge anyone who sees a vehicle with similar damage apparently parked up or abandoned to call us. I would also appeal to any mechanics, who may encounter a blue vehicle presented for repairs to get in contact before undertaking such work.

If anyone has seen this vehicle, or has a relative who drives a blue car and may have come home in a distressed state, I would urge that they contact police immediately.

– Sergeant Sam Cordingley, Hertfordshire Police

Anyone with any information is being asked to contact PC Dave Clarke at the Hertfordshire Police collision investigation unit on 101.
