Police dogs were used to try and track down a driver who damaged multiple cars in the middle of the night in Malpas.

Cheshire Police have said they are investigating after a driver fled the scene after creating a trail of destruction on Well Street in Malpas in the early hours of this morning (April 8).

Residents in the area were woken to the sounds of crashes and car alarms as the driver crashed in to a series of parked cars on the street.

Witnesses claimed that the driver initially crashed into a vehicle before colliding with a 4x4 leading to “a domino effect” for the cars behind it.


The driver then appears to have fled the scene and a police dog unit was deployed to track them down, however police have been unable to locate the driver.

Cheshire Police have confirmed that investigations remain ongoing and that they are looking to make contact with the driver of the vehicle.

A spokesperson for Cheshire Police said: “At 12.38am on 8 April police were called to Well Street in Malpas following reports of a driver colliding with a number of cars in the street.

“The driver then fled the scene. Officers, supported by the Alliance dog unit made a search of the area but he was not located.

“Enquiries are continuing in order to speak with the driver of the vehicle.”
