AN APPEAL has been launched to trace the drivers of two cars who failed to stop for police just after school run last week. Police also want dash cam footage from any motorists who saw the dangerous driving.
The incident occurred last Wednesday between 3.50pm and 4pm on Nine Mile Ride in Finchampstead.
Thames Valley Police said that two silver Volkswagen Polos drove away from a police car, driving down the wrong side of Nine Mile Ride in the process.
The vehicles then drove the wrong way around two roundabouts, first onto Finchampstead Road and then onto Barkham Ride.
The occupants then fled from the vehicles and ran down an alleyway on to Arnett Avenue.
Police said that there were two men in the vehicles. One was white and was wearing dark coloured trousers and a hooded top.
PC Paul Bentley based at Crowthorne police station said: “This incident happened at a very busy time of day and other drivers in the area had to take evasive action to avoid a collision with these vehicles.
“I would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed this incident and would particularly urge anyone with dash camera footage to get in touch.
“Anyone with information can contact me via the Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101.
“Alternatively, information can be given to the independent charity Crimestoppers (opens new window) anonymously on 0800 555 111. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.”
