Hit and Run in York
3:29pm 16th November 2010
Police in York are seeking information following a serious road traffic collision.
It occurred outside York District Hospital just before midnight on Sunday 7th November. It involved a blue Vauxhall Corsa and a 57 year old local woman, who was a pedestrian.
The Corsa was travelling along Wiggington Road, towards the city centre, when it left the road and struck the woman near to a mini roundabout. The woman suffered a broken pelvis and was taken to York District Hospital by ambulance where she received treatment.
The driver of the Corsa did not stop at the scene and drove off in the direction of York city centre.
The extent of damage to the vehicle is unknown. However, its near-side wing mirror was left at the scene.
Traffic Constable Martin Smith, of the force’s Roads Policing Group, said:
“The driver of the blue Corsa showed callous disregard for the woman that was knocked down. They could not have known the nature of the injuries they had caused, which although serious are thankfully not life-threatening.
“I would like to speak with anyone who witnessed the collision or has any information about the driver or passengers of the Corsa.
“As the vehicle lost its wing mirror I believe that it will have been taken to a garage for repair. Anyone who has carried out this type of repair is asked to contact the police as soon as possible.”
Anyone with any information about the collision or the current whereabouts of the Vauxhall Corsa is asked to contact TC Martin Smith on 0845 60 60 24 7 quoting reference number 12100192942. Alternatively, they can contact the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
