POLICE are hunting for a driver who fled after a car ploughed into a building.
Officers have been carrying out ground and air searches for the male driver of the black Audi, who crashed into the empty Adhoc PVCU Installations building on Station Road, Bagillt, on Saturday.
After the crash near the A548 coast road, the driver fled the scene.
Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward following the crash, in which no casualties were reported.
PC Phil Robinson said: “We would like to hear from anyone who was in the area and who may have seen the vehicle or the driver around the time of the collision.
“Please contact me on 101 quoting reference P020888.”
Police said the car which crashed into the building was an S reg black Audi, which was involved in a crash with a Peugeot and a lamppost before ploughing into the building.
Staff at neighbouring businesses on Station Road yesterday said the Adhoc building has been closed in recent months.
Bagillt councillor Mike Reece attended the scene shortly after the crash.
He said: “Looking at the damage caused I would say the driver is quite lucky to be alive.
“It is also fortunate nobody was in the building when this crash took place.
“When I got there there were emergency services there and the council were doing work to repair things.
“This crash has been a major talking point in Bagillt over the weekend.”
Another witness, retired paramedic Arwel Roberts, described the crash scene as “like something out of a movie”.
“I didn’t know what had happened at first,” he said.
“It was only when I followed the trail of wreckage that I saw the car in the Adhoc building.”
