A DRIVER crushed a man between two cars before fleeing the scene in a Southampton attack.

At about 5.30pm on Saturday in Kingsclere Avenue, Southampton, a Kia Ceed reversed into a man who was standing next to his parked green Peugeot 206 and crushed his legs and hands between the two vehicles.

The Kia then drove off and was later found burnt out in Silver Birch Close.

The 29-year-old victim suffered bruising and swelling to his right leg and an injury to his left hand.

Police are treating the incident as an assault and are asking any witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage to come forward and call 101, quoting reference number 44190215518.
