'Hand yourself in' plea by Emneth mother to hit and run driver who left scene of crash
A mum has issued an appeal for the hit and run driver who smashed into her car with her young children in it to hand themselves in.
Joanne Wharf, from Emneth, posted a picture of herself in a neck brace and her arm in a sling following the Wednesday evening collision in Guyhirn on local Facebook sites with a message to the missing driver.
"To the person who hit into my car on Mouth Road, Guyhirn last night and drove off without even checking to see if anyone was hurt,
"You might be interested to see a current picture of me. You might also be interested to know that there were three children in the car, the youngest being only three years old. You hit into us at such a speed we are all lucky to be alive.
"You have caused a lot of damage and injury. Do the decent thing and hand your self into police.
"If anyone has any information at all please contact me or the police asap. Thank you."
Joanne told the Citizen: "He was coming at us head on but I swerved so he hit the side of our car. If I hadn't have swerved I think we would be dead. He was coming so fast. On a single car road and on a blind bend! I guess he was doing about 70mph.
"I really want this person caught. We are all home now. We have whiplash and muscle damage and lots of bruises but we are OK thankfully. Honestly we are so lucky to be alive with how fast he hit us."
Joanne, who is well-known for fundraising for the Stroke Association after suffering a stroke herself in 2015, hopes someone might have noticed a car with a badly damaged front to contact police.
Anyone with any information should contact Cambridgeshire Police on 101.
