A man arrested after his car collided with a row of parked cars before flipping onto its roof in Maidenhead is due to be interview by police.
The 30-year-old driver was taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital by ambulance after the collision on Tuesday, May 8.
He was arrested on suspicion of failing to stop, dangerous driving, disqualified driving, failing to provide a specimen and possession of a controlled substance.
But police say he was later 'de-arrested' because he needed hospital treatment and was discharged two days later.
A police spokesman said: "He has not been arrested as there was no legal power to do so under the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 due to the time elapsed.”
Officers were called to Windrush Way at 1.53pm after a silver Ford Kuga veered into a wall and a row of parked cars before being driven away.
Witnesses say they saw the car driving 'erratically at speed' along Cordwallis Road before hitting more parked cars and flipping onto its roof.
The man is due to be interviewed by police and could face charges.
