Elderly woman knocked down in Malton
4:36pm 6th January 2012
Police in Malton are appealing for the driver of a car to come forward following a road traffic collision.
The incident occurred between 3.25pm and 3.40pm on Thursday 22nd December 2011 as an 89 year old woman crossed Finkle St from the market place.
As she walked behind the car, parked close to Escape hairdressers, it reversed slowly, knocking her down.
At the time of the collision the woman did not appear to be seriously injured. However, a few days later symptoms developed which have left her needing to use a walking frame and take pain control medication.
The car driver got out of the car and spoke with the woman, but did not leave his details as it was not thought she had suffered any injuries.
The driver is described as white, aged between 20 and 30 years old and was wearing a blue jumper. The only description of the car is that it is believed to be black.
There were also a number of other people at the scene who assisted the woman following the incident.
Traffic Constable Paul Merritt, of North Yorkshire Police's Roads Policing Group, said:
"I am urging the driver of the car to come forward and contact me as soon as possible as I need to speak to him.
"I would also like to speak to the other people who were in the area and assisted the lady following the incident."
Anyone who can help with this investigation is asked to contact TC Paul Merritt on 101. Press option 2 and ask for Paul Merritt by name.
