A DRIVER who caused more than £1,000 worth of damage to a woman’s car while she was looking after her dad in hospital left a fake name and number.

Donald Savage, 88, was rushed to Watford General Hospital after a fall.

His daughter Diane Crisp, 56, of Wroxham Avenue, Bennetts End, took her 84-year-old mother Isabella, who has dementia, to see him.

But after the visit on Thursday, February 23, she returned to the hospital car park to discover the bumper of her Mazda 6 had been damaged.

She said: “The whole bumper will have to be replaced. It’s just sickening at the end of the day, as they have not been upset and have done a lot of damage.

“It’s going to have to come off my insurance and I will not have a car for two days while it’s being repaired.

“I need that car to look after my elderly parents.”

She added: “It must have been seen because it is such a busy area but of course the person that has done it has given a false name and number so it gives the impression to people the he is being honest.

“It is people like him that our insurance up at the end of the day.”

Herts Constabulary spokesman Olivia Finucane appealed for anyone with information to get in touch by calling the force’s non-emergency number 101. “If anyone did see what happened please get in contact because as it stands we have got no CCTV and no witnesses,” she said.
