Do you recognise this white truck?
A woman has appealed on social media to help trace a truck that hit her husband’s car and failed to stop.
Lucia Faria said: “A truck was coming towards him and came on his side of the road, hit the mirror on our car but kept going.
“My husband stopped and there was a car behind him that stopped.
“The guy asked my husband if he okay and my husband asked him whether he was able to see the truck.
“The guy said ‘no’ because he was too busy trying to swerve into somebody’s driveway to prevent him from getting damage on his car.
“The mirror broke into the car — my husband has nicks on his neck and on his hand — there is glass all over the car that he had to clean up today.
“His cuts are still bleeding on his hand. I just wrapped it up again. It was minor but it could have been a lot worse.
“The shards of glass could have gone into his eyes. The passenger seat had big shards of glass all over it.”
The crash happened last Thursday on North Shore Road near the C-Mart store about 3.55pm.
The impact sent shards of glass flying into Mr Faria’s car, cutting his hand.
The Farias have posted an image of the truck from C-Mart’s CCTV on Facebook, but no one has come forward to identify the vehicle.
Ms Faria said she had reported to police but added that she thought a social-media appeal could help track the truck’s driver down.
Anyone with information should contact police or Ms Faria through her Facebook page.
