Car crashes into tree outside Bishop's Stortford restaurant Skew
Police and a fire and rescue crew were called after a car crashed into a tree outside a restaurant in Bishop's Stortford at the weekend.
The incident involving a 52-reg Toyota RAV4 happened at Turkish eatery Skew in Riverside on Saturday (October 5) at around 7pm.
When police officers arrived the driver was not with the vehicle. A spokeswoman for Hertfordshire Constabulary said on Monday morning: "He has since been traced and enquiries are continuing at this time."
A check with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) reveals that the Toyota's MoT expired three days before the incident.
Hertfordshire Highways were called to deal with the tree.
Herts Fire and Rescue Service control tweeted that a crew from the Bishop's Stortford station made the scene safe. "No persons were trapped in the vehicle," it added.
