The victims of a ‘hit-and-run’ in Hastings believe a different vehicle crashed into their van than previously suspected.

Croft Glass originally thought a white 4x4 car drove into one of its vans on Beaconsfield Road but a white van is now the prime suspect.

Owner Mark Gardiner is offering £500 for information that leads to a prosecution after an estimated £20,000 of damage was done in the incident on Tuesday, February 21.

The business has changed its mind as the van was seen on CCTV in front of the 4x4 before the crash, then the order is switched.

It is thought the 4x4 overtook the van after it hit Croft Glass’ vehicle.
