Two drivers were arrested after car crashes yesterday.

The first incident was a hit-and-run involving two vehicles near Elbow Beach on South Road, Paget, at about 6.30pm.

“The driver, believed to be a 43-year-old Warwick man, was subsequently arrested on suspicion of impaired driving.”

In the second incident, a car hit a 59-year-old woman as she walked in the area of Mangrove Bay Road, Sandys, at 8.15pm.

The victim was treated for an arm injury at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital and was said to be recovering in a general ward today.

Police said: “The vehicle understood to be involved was later located and impounded. The driver, believed to be a 37-year-old Sandys man, was subsequently arrested on suspicion of impaired driving.”

Anyone with information about either crash are urged to call police at 295-0011.
