Well what a night. It is just after 5am and I have just got home, after waiting with a friend for the Police and Recovery Vehicle, following a hit and run accident on the road that runs along the back of the Football Stadium in Peyia. The accident happened at approx 12.30am just behind the Stadium. The offending car came along the road from the direction of Wood n Good and The Brewery Bar, turned left at the back of the Stadium, but was then driving on the wrong side of the road, so that it was facing the oncoming vehicle and my friends mum had to swerve onto the wrong side of the road in an attempt to avoid the oncoming vehicle, which then, probably realising his mistake, swerved into her direction and hit her car. My friends mum had just collected her from work and was returning home, when the drunk driver (we believe to be English) crashed into her. A witness spoke to the man, and confirmed that he was indeed very drunk, but having gone back into the house to get a pen and paper, the guy got back into his car and drove off, leaving a 62 year old lady in shock and completely alone in a car that could not be driven and is quite possibly a write-off. She has sustained injury to her chest, possibly whiplash, but will know more tomorrow, once she is over the shock.
I am asking each and every one of my friends in and around Peyia to please ask around and keep your eyes open for a damaged vehicle, probably a 4x4 type sized car, we think possibly maroon in colour, but it will definitely have a severely damaged left wing and/or bonnet, also a shattered headlight and partially missing front number plate which we think begins EYM ?
The witness said that he has seen the male driver in and around Peyia, so he must live locally, and he would recognise him if he sees him again. Estimated 60-70ish, wearing a puffa type jacket and a bobble hat. Could he have been drinking at Haris Bar, or at the Kareoke in the Brewery Bar on Friday night? If you were at either of these venues, then please have a think and private message me with any information you think may help us to catch the culprit. All information provided will be in complete confidence and if anything leads to the offender, then we will of course hand this information to the Police, but we will withhold the source of any information provided to protect your anonymity, I promise.
All that remains is for me to say - if it was YOU that was driving, and you are reading this message, then once you have sobered up and realise what you have done, please do the decent thing and report to the Police Station because Peyia is a surprisingly small place, and WE WILL FIND YOU.
