Appeal for witnesses after woman is injured falling from vehicle

Police are investigating reports of assault and dangerous driving after a woman was seriously injured falling from a moving vehicle in Plymouth.

An appeal has been issued for witnesses and dash-cam footage following an incident at the junction of Eggbuckland Road and Frogmore Avenue on Wednesday 20 November.

Officers were called at around 6pm with reports from members of the public that a female was seen falling from a motor vehicle which had allegedly been driving erratically.

The vehicle came from the direction of Novorossisk Road, eventually driving down Church Hill and on to Eggbuckland Road.

It then mounted the kerb at the junction of Frogmore Avenue and went over the grass verge towards the Co-Op store.

The female, aged in her 40s, was seen to fall out of the vehicle from the
passenger side. She suffered injuries, including a suspected broken hip, and required hospital treatment.

Police would like to hear from anyone who saw a black Mitsubishi L200 Warrior pick-up truck in the area of Novorossiysk, Forder Valley, Church Hill, Eggbuckland Road and Frogmore Avenue between 5.30pm and 6.30pm.

A 50-year-old local man has been arrested on suspicion of assault and dangerous driving. He has been released on police bail until 19 December.

Witnesses, or any motorists with dash-cam footage, are urged to call police on 101, or email 101@dc.police.uk, quoting crime reference number CR/104899/19.

Information can also be passed anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555111, or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org
