Witness sought after collision

Police are appealing for witnesses after a hit-and-run vehicle collision near Hawick last week.

The incident happened around 2.15pm on Monday, May 19, on the A71 near Groundistone, a mile north of Hawick.

A white Iveco Daily camper van was towing another Iveco Daily van, when it left the road, overturned and collided with a wall.

The van that was being towed spun off the road and also collided with the wall.

Both drivers of the vehicles failed to stop and report the accident, and made off prior to police arrival.

A police spokesman commented: “It is believed that the two drivers were picked up by a female driver and police are now appealing for her to come forward. Similarly anyone who witnessed this incident is urged to contact police on 101.”
