Police are seeking witnesses to some seriously aggressive driving in York.

It happened at around 7.50pm on Monday (10 February). A car was aggressively being followed by another from Clifton to Bootham.

Both vehicles are believed to have mounted the pavement narrowly missing pedestrians.

The cars then came to a halt on St Leonard’s Place where someone from the rear vehicle approached the occupants of the first vehicle and began violently banging on the windows.

A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said:

  • We are requesting the public’s assistance to help establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident.

    In particular, we are appealing for information about any persons who may have witnessed erratic driving on Bootham travelling into York or the vehicles coming to a halt on St Leonard’s Place in York.

Officers would also like to hear from the two pedestrians who were narrowly missed by the two vehicles.

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation should contact North Yorkshire Police.
