The van, described as having a white cab with chevron-like markings on it, did not remain at the scene following the collision and drove off in the direction of Fareham down the A27.

It will likely have damage to its offside front bumper and wing mirror as a result of the incident.

Police say that they are keen to speak to the driver of a small red car that was driving behind the flatbed van, as this person may have witnessed the incident and captured something on dashcam.
