Jason Bunce hit and run – image released

By Paul James in Local People

POLICE probing a serious hit and run accident in Kingsteignton earlier this month have released a CCTV image of a potential witness they want to trace.

Jason Bunce, 25, remains in a critical condition in intensive care at Plymouth’s Derriford Hospital after the accident involving a small silver or darker car in Gestridge Road near its junction with Exeter Road in the early hours of April 8.

Police say they want to speak to the dog walker featured at the edge of the CCTV frame image.

Insp Rich McLellan said: ‘We know this is not a great image. At the top of the picture we can see the lower half of a pedestrian walking a dog. 

‘However, this is a serious incident and we are asking the public to help us. The incident took place just before 1am. It is quite likely the dog walker lives nearby. 

‘It’s a small terrier-like dog. Someone may know someone with such a dog who frequently walks their dog late at night before going to bed.’

Investigators are continuing to review video footage taken from the surrounding area of Kingsteignton at the time of the collision in a bid to identify the vehicle involved.

Insp McLellan said: ‘It’s possible someone knows who did this. I would urge them to contact us because a young man remains seriously injured.’

Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 offers a reward up to £1,000 for information leading to the arrest and charge of a suspect. Information given is treated in confidence.

Police can be emailed 101@dc.police.uk or rung on 101, quoting log 53 of April 8.

Why doesn't the police release a picture of the vehicle which was spotted on the CCTV of a local garage afaik, this may help people recognise it in their street/area, a lot more helpful I believe than a pair of legs......
