Eyewitnesses saw the four occupants of the car, who are believed to be young and local to the area, flee the scene afterwards.

A police helicopter has been hovering over the Trinity Mead area and dog teams have been brought in. Police cars with dog units were seen opposite Budgens in Trinity Mead.

Explaining why the helicopter had been called to locate the occupants, a Warwickshire Police spokesperson said: “If you run off after a collision it is a bit suspicious.”
