We've been asked to post this message:

Thames Valley Police Collision Investigation Unit is trying to trace a vehicle which we believe was involved in a fatal hit and run collision.

We are looking for a blue C220 CDi four door saloon WR03JYB.

VIN WDC 203 066 2R 094960

Engine number 611 962 306 266 88

It may still have damage to the front nearside. Have you had this vehicle offered to you? Does it ring a bell in any way?

A fragment of padding which we strongly suspect to be from part number 203 885 03 37 was left at the scene of the collision.

This is a section of black polystyrene from within the front nearside corner of the bumper.

Our problem is the format of the date stamp on the part we have found.

The part left behind has the date of manufacture shown as a grid with small dots to indicate a date.

It seems that this date stamp format may be quite rare, as the standard part for Mercedes shows its date of manufacture as a clock face.

The fragment we have found looks like photo1, note the grid on the left. The intact Mercedes part is photo2, with its clock face marker.

We are speaking to Mercedes, but in the mean time we know that what your membership doesn’t know about Mercedes is not worth knowing!

Any help would be in strict confidence.

Thanks,
Steve Moffat

The second picture is from inside the front bumper, from edge of number plate to where the bumper starts to curve round the wing, just behind the painted outer plastic. The first picture is possibly from behind the number plate itself. The chassis number is wrong. Most probably 203006 not 203066. this would be a C220CDi saloon from 2001-2003 but is the number plate correct??

The deal is that forensic science has evolved to such a degree that collecting the data to reconstruct events takes an incredible amount of time. It is no longer acceptable to just declare it an accident. There MUST be some one something accountable

"In the old days" a couple of snaps is all that would be needed. Now they have laser tomography techniques that allow 3D reconstructs of incidents.

The next development will be to "snapshot" these things and allow rapid data acquisition.

I have been a driver for over 30 years and I recall a time when roads and highways were NOT shut down for hours after serious accidents. Is this something relatively new like the last ten years. A single car accident on a highway at 2:00 in the morning causes the highway to be shut down until well into the next morning creating a rush hour commuting nightmare. What's the deal?

See my response in the other thread on this subject .
