A MAN has been arrested on suspicion of assault after a woman was injured in a crash.

The smash happened at around 11pm on Monday (May 13) in Victoria Street, Warwick.

The woman, who is in her 20s, was taken to hospital with serious leg and face injuries.

The white Audi believed to have been involved in the collision was found a short time later in The Chantry having crashed with a parked car and flipped onto its roof.

A 31-year-old man from Coventry was arrested nearby on suspicion of assault, dangerous driving, driving while disqualified, driving without insurance, making off from the scene of an accident and failing to provide a sample.

Police believe the pair had a disagreement in the car which led to the victim getting out and later being hit by the vehicle.

Police investigator Russell Marsh said: “At this time we are treating this as a deliberate act.

“We’re keen to speak to anyone who witnessed this collision or the collision in the Chantry. We’re especially keen to hear from anyone who has dash cam footage from the area around the time of either incident.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or ring 0800 555 111 to speak to Crimestoppers anonymously.
