The Welshpool area is on the lookout for a small blue metallic car with damage on the driver side after it struck another car on the Guilsfield Road containing a mother and her two children before speeding off.

The incident last Wednesday has sparked outrage with the mother, Rachel Lewis, saying that although unharmed, the collision left them shocked after been forced into the verge.

Police are on the case, and are believed to have enlisted the help of their Automatic Number Plate Reader system in the area.

Appealing for help, Rachel said on social media: “It was roughly 7pm and a car smallish in size, Fiesta-like approached me on the wrong side of the road going towards Guilsfield.

“The car was navy metallic in colour and had a loud sports exhaust on. The car hit me causing significant damage to the car and forcing me into the verge. The car did not stop or slow down and in fact appeared to speed off from the scene.

“I had two small children in the car who were obviously very upset, although unharmed. I am still shocked that someone felt they could leave the scene of an incident, not knowing if we were hurt of not.”

Rachel’s appeal has been shared almost 800 times on Facebook. If you have any information, contact Welshpool Police on 101.
