Two young children narrowly escaped injury when a car hit their pushchair.

Police said that the accident happened when a woman aged in her 30s was pushing an orange pushchair carrying her three-year-old daughter – and her four-year-old sister on the back on a buggy board.

They were waiting on a grass verge next to the exit to a car boot sale when a car turned left out of the field, colliding with the front of the pushchair, damaging the wheels beyond repair. The woman and her children were not injured.

Police today revealed that the incident happened off Titchfield Road in Fareham at around 11.15am on Sunday, June 9, 2013.

They appealed for the driver of the car - described as an older-looking beige four-door saloon - to come forward.

Police said that the driver was described as being aged in his 60s - with a woman of a similar age travelling in the front passenger seat.

Investigating officer PC Douglas Westerman said: ‘Police are asking for the male driver of a beige car involved in a collision with a pushchair at the exit to the Titchfield Road Car boot sale to come forward. He failed to stop at the time.

‘We are also appealing for any witnesses to the collision, particularly a driver who was directly behind the car in the queue to leave the boot sale.

‘This motorist spoke with the woman saying that he would try to get the registration of the beige car as it was driven away in the direction of the Titchfield gyratory.’

Both motorists or anyone with information are asked to contact Park Gate Police Station by phoning 101. Mini-com users can phone 01962 875000. Alternatively, call the independent Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111 to give information anonymously.
