Stone wall damaged by large trucks squeezing through a road not wide enough, hit and run probably early morning.

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and South Oxfordshire District Council 2 minutes later

This was a hit and run accident in front of my house by by a large truck trying to squeeze through the high street road not suitable to accommodate large trucks side by side. It was not observed so we cannot chase culprit. The wall is part of a historic building located on a blind curve, there is no gap between wall and road. So problematic to fix but needs to be done ASAP as it might collapse either into the road causing an accident or onto a pedestrian. The road will most definitely have to be closed to fix this.
