POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a woman was injured after a vehicle drove at her aggressively and failed to stop.
It happened in Station Road, Old Harlow, at around 11.45am on Friday, September 19. The woman pedestrian, aged 57 and from the Harlow area, was crossing the road between Barclays Bank towards HG Autos when a car drove at her and made gestures at her. The vehicle did not make contact with her but she was so shaken up after the incident that she suffered a mild heart attack and had to be admitted to the town’s Princess Alexandra Hospital.
Investigating Officer Pc Paul Marks said: “The victim was unable to get a description of the vehicle. I would ask for anybody who may have seen what happened to get in touch with me. Two people helped the victim shortly after the incident and I would ask them to contact me.”
He added: “In particular I would like to speak to the driver and would urge them to come forward.”
Anybody that can help with any information should contact Pc Marks at Harlow Police Station on Essex Police 101.
