AN elderly Barrow resident has been left with extensive damage to his home after a motorist collided with his wall and fled the scene.
A blue BMW 318i collided with a wall at the junction of Ainslie Street with Romney Road at around 10am yesterday
The driver, a man aged 20 to 30, was seen to get out of the car from the passenger side, inspect the damage and get back in the driver’s side, before driving off along Romney Road.
Police said the collision has caused extensive damage to the wall of the property.
Robert Sayle, 73, who has lived at the property for over 12 years said: “My neighbour came over and asked if I knew a car had smashed into the wall.
“There are a lot of drivers who try to come down that road a bit too fast.”
The vehicle was later found near West View Road in Barrow.
Anyone who saw the incident is asked to contact police by calling 101.
