On Saturday, August 22, at 4.30pm, whilst waiting in New Street, Honiton, for my partner to drop a DVD off, my car was hit by a passing car.

I had my hazards on when a silver car hit my wing mirror with an almighty thump.

The car was being driven by a lady in her 50s. I was very shocked when she carried on driving; even a passer-by commented on the incident, as she had heard the noise and asked me if I was OK.

By the time I got out of the car to check for damage, she had gone. Amazingly, she drove around the block and passed me again without stopping!

I gestured for her to stop, but she just drove past. She clearly knew what she had done and didn't have the decency to stop (twice!).

I have seen the car in Honiton since the incident, so assume she is local to the area and would like her to read this and feel some remorse for her actions.
