But the driver failed to stop, and a police chase led to the vehicle being apparently abandoned.

It would appear that the driver fled his or her vehicle and fled on foot.

South Yorkshire Police are currently searching for the driver of the vehicle after the incident at about 8pm tonight (Tuesday).

South Yorkshire Police’s SY Ops Support tweeted: “Fail to stop. Excellent commentary by motorcycle cop. Enquiries ongoing to trace driver. Run but can’t hide.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.
