Vehicle mounted pavement at pedestrian

A PEDESTRIAN was forced to jump out of the way of an oncoming vehicle after it allegedly mounted the pavement at speed towards him, said police.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident which occurred on the Main Road through Stickney at approximately 11.15am on Thursday.

They said a 56-year-old man was walking along the pavement approximately 500 yards from the church, when a white saloon vehicle, similar to a Honda Prelude or Rover 214, is alleged to have beeped its horn and then mounted the pavement at speed towards him.

A police spokesman said This manoeuvre forced him to jump out of the way before the vehicle then continued towards Boston without stopping.

The vehicle contained a male driver and female passenger who have both been described as well-built with the driver having ‘plenty of hair’.

Police said it is believed that an elderly couple in a dark blue Rover were following this vehicle and may have witnessed the incident.

Anyone with information should contact Pc Eldridge at Horncastle Police Station on the new non-emergency 101 number.
