AN ALLOA worker is appealing to town centre employees and residents after her car was struck by a smash and dash driver.

No note or contact details were left behind after Helen Jamieson's white Peugeot 208 was left with a broken rear light and hole through a crumpled bodywork.

The incident took place in the area around Bank Street and Bedford Place two weeks ago on Friday, January 19.

Police are now investigating the case with Helen hoping that someone may have witnessed what happened on that snowy day.

The woman, who has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, told the Advertiser that the added stress of dealing with the incident does not help when there is already so much weight on her shoulders.

She said: "All I did was go to work that day and my car ends up like this. I actually didn't do anything wrong here."

The vehicle was parked around the Bedford Place, Bank Street and Church Street junctions, near to the SMS garage on the opposite side.

It was a day of heavy snow and challenging road conditions with a number of weather alerts in place during the day.

Helen believes the damage could only have been caused by another car colliding with hers.

She added: "The driver of the vehicle that hit my car must have hit my driver side wing mirror first as it was folded in when I got to the car.

"I am presuming that this means he was actually by then on the wrong side of the road and going in the wrong direction, and he or she can't fail to have known that they were hitting my car.

"I realise that accidents do happen and the weather was horrendous, but there is no excuse for leaving the scene and not leaving an apology and contact details."

A spokeswoman for Police Scotland confirmed: "Police in Alloa are investigating after a car was damaged on Bank Street, Alloa, Friday January 19.

"The rear driver-side wing and light of the white Peugeot 208 were both damaged while the car was parked between the hours of 8.20am and 4pm.

"Inquiries are ongoing into the full circumstances and anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact officers on 101 quoting no. 2504 of January 19."

Those who may have information, but wish to remain anonymous, can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
