A CAR almost overturned in what is seen by police as a deliberate ramming in Huddersfield town centre.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident to help them trace the hit and run driver.
A red VW Passat pulled out of a parking spot on Lord Street at 2.15pm yesterday and then turned into Northumberland Street and headed down the road in the middle lane towards the junction with Leeds Road.
A yellow Fiat Doblo was in the inside lane.
Police say a blue or dark-coloured four-wheeled drive vehicle overtook both cars and went into the bus lane which goes up the road.
Sgt Andy Addy, of Huddersfield traffic police, said: "This vehicle appeared to deliberately ram the side of the VW which then collided with the Fiat.
"The driver of the Fiat lost control and his car almost overturned. The four-wheeled drive vehicle failed to stop and left the scene. We will be checking with CCTV today to see if the incident has been caught on camera."
The 70-year-old Denby Dale man driving the Passat was unhurt, but the 38-year-old Wakefield man driving the Fiat suffered whiplash and an injury to his lower back.
