Appeal for information following serious collision in Epsom

Detectives investigating a collision in Epsom are appealing for help to locate the vehicle involved in the collision and are asking residents to keep an eye out for vehicles which have sustained serious damage since yesterday.


Officers were called to South Street at 12.15am yesterday morning by colleagues from the South East Coast Ambulance Service after a man was found unresponsive in the road.


We believe he may have been involved in a collision with a vehicle which failed to stop at the scene, close to the BP garage and ring road, sometime between 12.03 - 12.09am. 


A 44-year-old man remains in hospital in a life-threatening condition.


T/Detective Inspector Lucy Peacock-Smith, who is investigating the case, said: “We have been working round the clock to follow all lines of enquiry to identify the vehicle involved in the collision, and as part of our enquiries, we are appealing to residents who may have noticed a vehicle which has sustained serious damage since yesterday to report it to us.

“We are particularly interested in vehicles with front panels missing or damage under the vehicle with potentially missing parts. If you work in a garage, or if you generally notice any vehicles with the type of damage described, please contact us so we can investigate.

“It is vital that we trace the vehicle and the person who was driving that vehicle in Epsom that night. If you have any information which could help our investigation, please report it to us straightaway.”

If you have any information which could help our investigation, including CCTV or dashcam footage of the area at the time, please contact us quoting PR/45230055312 via:
