York police are asking a driver to come forward after a collision in the city.
It occurred outside the Co-op in Haxby between 11.30am and 12pm on Monday 11 February 2013.
The collision involved Andrea Mollin, who's in a wheelchair, who was holding her four year old son George, and a red car.
The car reversed into her, knocking her over and drove off without stopping after a woman in the car is said to have encouraged him to leave.
Andrea had got out of her friend's car because George was being sick and was able to pick him up and put him on her knee before the car collided with them.
But Andrea has been left thinking about what could have happened.
Andrea suffered a minor arm injury which did not require medical treatment as a result of the collision.
The car, which is described as red and Astra-sized, was driven by a man in his 40s or 50s.
PC Vince Maltby, of North Yorkshire Police, said: “I am urging the driver of the car to come forward and contact the police before we contact you. It is an offence to fail to stop at the scene of a collision and you are only making things worse for yourself by not coming forward.
An elderly man on a bike who is believed to have seen what happened is also being urged to come forward.
PC Maltby added “If you witnessed the collision, I am asking you to get touch with the police straight away.”
Anyone who witnessed the collision please contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Vince Maltby. Alternatively information can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
