Emmerdale fans have called Jamie Tate ‘despicable’ as he drove off after running someone over in last night’s episode (Wednesday, July 8).
In the visit to the Dales, Jamie desperately tried to track down his wife Andrea, who has fled the village.
After Kim received a strange anonymous phone call, she and Jamie managed to trace it and Jamie set off to bring Andrea home.
However as he was driving down a country road, he started hitting speed of 90 miles per hour. He soon got distracted by his GPS and ended up hitting someone who was on the side of the road.
Although the vet did stop his car, he didn’t get out to see who he hit and simply drove off.
Viewers were disgusted with Jamie’s actions calling him ‘despicable’
