A DRIVER was seen fleeing the scene after a stolen vehicle was crashed in Southampton.

On Tuesday, a silver Vauxhall Vectra was stolen from outside a property on Doncaster Road, Eastleigh.

This is said to have taken place around 7am.

But then, at 7.45am that same morning, the car was then involved in a crash on Thomas Lewis Way.

The car collided with another vehicle, a black Seat Ibiza, but no injuries were reported.

The driver of the Vauxhall was then seen fleeing the scene.

Now police are appealing to the public for help with their investigation.
