He said: "Me and my pal were walking home when we saw this car zoom past and doing about 70mph and on the wrong side of the road. It's not a good road to do that anyway.

"Then we heard the dunk as it hit the bollards and ran over to see if anyone was injured. There was a lot of people out and they saw a man run away from the car and the way he was driving they said he must have been drunk.

"He had a collision with three metal bollards. He hit the bollards, stopped and has done a runner."

Firefighters were called to the scene.

A Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: "At 10.46pm on Wednesday (June 13) one crew from Ramsey was called to an incident at 10.46pm.

"Firefighters arrived to find a car had collided with bollards on High Street, Ramsey. The driver had already fled the scene when crews arrived.
