  1. Hi You have posted about the collision on Middlemore Road Northfield,- We were one of the victims of the so called collision It was at 2.30am 14/07/2018. We were awoken by a terrific explosion( we thought it was a bomb!) Went outside & it was carnage, A Silver Audi A4 had come up Middlemore Road towards Wychall Road. at app 70mph (police estimation) & damaged 4 vehicles. It first hit a yellow mini then smashed into our car Honda CR-V shunted that 15mtrs across the road & pushed it into a neighbours garden. Then hit two more cars
    There were 5 people in the car. The driver described by many witnesses as a chubby black lad & a girl passenger ran off & left 3 passengers in the car. One injured lad [name removed] & was taken off by ambulance. The other two back seat passengers [name removed] & a girl ran off but kept coming back to the car searching for something in the car. There was an empty bottle of Vodka & beer bottles in the car. It is obvious why the driver ran off. Our car & the mini are write offs. Bits from our car & the drivers Audi were strewn over about 30mtrs over the road. We are now left to battle with the insurance companies to replace our cars.
