Police are investigating after a woman was injured after she had to swerve to avoid an overtaking vehicle near Shipston-on-Stour yesterday (Monday).

The collision happened at 11am on the A429 Fosse Way near the T junction for Darlingscote and Ilmington.

The female driver of a silver Ford Focus, travelling from Moreton in Marsh, swerved to avoid an overtaking vehicle coming towards her and lost control of the vehicle. The car went through a hedge and rolled into a field.

The 63-year-old driver suffered cuts and bruises.

PC Su Sumners would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident, and in particular the driver of a dark coloured pick up truck.

She would also like to hear from a man who went to the assistance of the driver, switched off the car ignition and seems to have inadvertently walked off with the car keys.

Anyone with information should contact PC Sumners at Warwickshire Police on 101, or by email at su.sumners@warwickshire.pnn or contact the collision helpline on 01926 415415.
