A crowd of people outside NBs in Bridge Street Northampton were hit by a car that didn’t stop in the early hours of this morning (Thursday).
It happened after some kind of argument took place in the street. A second collision in Weedon Road is also being investigated when a car was hit and the driver left the scene on foot.
Northamptonshire Police have released the following statement:
