POLICE are appealing for witnesses and dash-cam footage after a collision involving a man and a vehicle in Newton Abbot.

Officers were called at about 6.40pm on Thursday May 9 by a member of the public who reported a man was lying injured on a grass verge in St Marychurch Road.

It was reported that the man had exited a silver coloured Renault Clio before being involved in a collision with the car, causing him to be knocked to the ground. 

The Clio is then said to have left the scene in the direction of the Penn Inn roundabout.

The man suffered minor injuries.

A woman in her 20s was arrested on suspicion of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and dangerous driving and has since been released on police bail while enquiries continue.

Officers are keen to speak to anybody who witnessed the collision, or who may have relevant dash-cam footage.

Anybody able to help the investigation can call police 101 or go to the Devon and Cornwall Police website and quote crime reference number 50240111753.
