Two people – believed to be male – are reported to have got out of the BMW andleft the scene of the collision, possibly into nearby woodland. One of these people was said to have been helping the other to walk, so police believe at least one was injured.

Police want to hear from anyone who saw the collision, or who may have any information about the BMW occupants.
