Police appeal after suspects escape in car chase

Police in Bournemouth are appealing for information after a vehicle failed to stop when requested by officers and crashed into another car in the Kinson area of the town.

The blue Vauxhall Astra was driving along Turbary Park Avenue at around 6pm on Sunday, when it refused to pull over.

It was followed down Mandale Road where it mounted the kerb and drove down a narrow footpath.

Police then stopped and moments later the Astra hit a yellow Daewoo Matiz. The occupants of the Matiz, a woman and two young children, suffered minor injures.

The driver of the Astra and a passenger then got into another car and fled the scene.

I am appealing to members of the public for any information in relation to this incident, in particular details about those involved and their whereabouts.

The offending vehicle was driven in an extremely dangerous manner around a residential estate and failed to stop for police when requested.

Anyone with any information is urged to call Dorset Police in confidence on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
