Police arrest motorist after Burnham-On-Sea road accident

A motorist has been arrested after allegedly running away from his car after an accident in Burnham-On-Sea this week.

Police were called to Marine Drive at 5am on Wednesday morning (February 4th) after a Ford Probe skidded across a grass verge, collided with a sign post, and ended up in a front garden.

Burnham-On-Sea police spokesman Martin Dunscombe told "A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of failing to stop at an accident and driving while disqualified.

"He was held in custody and later released on bail pending further enquiries."

"We would appeal for anyone who saw the accident to get in contact with Avon and Somerset Police."
