Appeal for witnesses following dangerous driving incident on the A34 northbound

Police are appealing for witnesses to a dangerous driving incident on the A34 northbound on Tuesday afternoon (26 October).

At approximately 3.20pm officers travelling on the carriageway saw a silver Subaru Outback driving the wrong way on the Whitchurch slip road northbound.

Officers attempted to stop the vehicle, which then joined the A34 from the slip road and began driving in the correct direction. Following a pursuit officers lost sight of the vehicle at the Beacon Hill exit.

Police have been conducting enquiries to locate the vehicle involved and are now turning to the public for help.

Were you in the area at the time? Did you see a silver Subaru Outback driving the wrong way up the slip road? Did you witness the vehicle travelling along the A34 afterwards?

Police would like to hear from anyone with dash cam footage of the incident or the vehicle around the time stated above. We’d also like to hear from you if you’ve seen the vehicle since.

Police believe that it possibly has damage to its offside and has no front number plate.

Anyone with information, no matter how small it may seem, is asked to contact police on 101 quoting reference 44210430064.
