Witnesses sought after two collisions involving tractor in Grimston
Police are appealing for witnesses following two collisions involving a tractor in the Grimston area on Saturday (March 30).
Officers are appealing for motorists who may have seen a green John Deere tractor towing a plough driving through the Pentney, Grimston and Gayton areas between 8.30am and 11am on Saturday.
The tractor, which had the number plate AY19 XEJ, was involved in a collision with a silver Passat car on the B1153 near Pentney, heading towards Gayton, shortly after 8.30am on Saturday. It failed to stop after the collision.
In the second incident, just a short time later, the tractor was involved in a collision with a stationary Passat car – a second Passat – on Lime Kiln Road in Gayton. The tractor failed to stop.
The tractor stopped at the crossroads of the B1145 and B1153 at Gayton, when the driver of a car following the vehicle attempted to speak to the tractor driver.
The driver of the tractor, a man in his 20s, was later detained in Anmer and taken to King's Lynn Police Investigation Centre for questioning.
He was arrested on suspicion of failing to stop after a collision, dangerous driving, driving under the influence of drugs, possessing class B or C drugs and obstructing a police officer, and has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information or dash cam footage to contact PC David Lake at Hunstanton Police on 101.
Alternatively, they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
