POLICE are trying to locate the driver of a car involved in an incident that forced a vehicle off the road at Granton late last month.

Senior Constable Lee Warrington of Tasmania Police said witnesses were being sought to the crash where a white Toyota Hilux utility, travelling towards New Norfolk, was forced off the Lyell Hwy near Rowbottoms Rd, Granton, at about 5.30pm on May 21.

“A dark-coloured, small-medium-sized car veered onto the incorrect side of the road in front of the utility,” Senior Constable Warrington said.

“The utility was forced to take evasive action to avoid a head-on collision, which resulted in the utility crashing. The other vehicle continued to travel towards Hobart,” he said.

The driver of the utility suffered several spinal fractures and was hospitalised for several days. The Derwent Valley man is still recovering from the injuries and has been off work since the crash. Police are understood to have dash-cam vision of the incident and are now calling for the driver of other vehicle, and any witnesses, to come forward.

Information can be provided to the New Norfolk Police Station by calling 13 14 44. Details can also be provided anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online at www.crimestopperstas.com.au
