AN elderly Hastings resident is calling for public assistance in finding a motorist who ran into her car and then drove off without exchanging names and addresses.
Trish Allen, of Peninsula Parklands retirement village, parked her car behind Kmart, in the area bounded by Queen, Elizabeth and Victoria streets, 1.30-3.30pm, Thursday 23 August, while she visited her doctor.
While there her royal blue Holden Barina was side swiped by the other car which was quickly driven away. “There is a whole piece missing,” she said.
“I called my insurance company and was told I could not claim until I got the registration number of the other driver.”
Ms Allen reported the incident to Hastings police who are looking for CCTV footage.
Anyone knowing the culprits should call 5970 7800.
