An elderly man failed to stop after two collisions and then attempted to steal a car before running off on foot.
The man, described to be wearing an old sheepskin leather jacket and jeans, failed to stop after two collisions in South Norfolk yesterday.
At around 3.25pm, the driver of a blue Fiat Punto failed to stop after crashing into a blue Audi A3 on High Road, in Roydon, near to the school.
After fleeing the scene he was involved in another collision just seven minutes later, at 3.32pm on the A1066 at the junction of School Road.
