Man flees from car crash

A MAN seen running from the scene of a road crash in Whithorn is being sought by police.

Police Scotland want to trace the man who was seen running from the scene of a road crash which involved a silver Renault Clio car and a boat which was parked on a trailer in Isle Street in Whithorn.
The crash happened at about 1.30 am and 2 am on Saturday.
The car involved was stolen sometime earlier from Park Lane in Whithorn.
The man seen running from the car is described as being between 5’6″ and 5’8″ tall, and was wearing a dark coloured hooded top or jacket.
He was last seen running up Green Croft.
Constable Kirsty Cantlie said: “It appears that after the crash a lot of revving of the car engine went on before the driver abandoned the car left the scene.
“Anyone who may have been woken by the noise and who may have looked out and saw anything should give us a call on 101.”
