Car hits pedestrians in Yeovil

Avon & Somerset Police are appealing for witnesses after an incident in Yeovil yesterday (Friday 4th October).

At around 6.25pm a  car collided with a number of pedestrians on Hendford Hill. The car was a dark coloured 4×4 vehicle. The driver of the vehicle, a man in his 70s, initially failed to stop at the scene before returning later. He was arrested and remains in police custody.
