Police appeal for witnesses to alleged hit-and-run in Stoke, Coventry

POLICE are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a 21-year-old pedestrian was left with a fractured skull in an alleged hit-and-run in Coventry on Friday November 15.

Officers were called to Humber Avenue, Stoke, just before 8.30pm where the driver of what is believed to be a silver Ford Focus car appeared to lose control and span 360 degrees on the road, before hitting the pedestrian.

Police say a 21-year-old man was left on the pavement with a fractured skull, while the driver continued driving towards London Road.

Fortunately, it is reported by police that the young man has since recovered from his injuries, but the long term effects of his injury are unknown.

PC Antony Coy, from the St Michael’s Neighbourhood Team, said: “I am asking anyone who witnessed the incident and has not yet come forward, to speak to us.

“Perhaps someone in the area has noticed a damaged silver car that seems out of place or even heard someone discussing what happened that night. “We’d be keen to hear from anyone with information.

“If you have dash-cam footage of a suspicious car in the Humber Avenue area immediately after the hit-and-run, we’d be keen to get a copy of that.”

Investigations are continuing and anyone with information can contact police via LiveChat at west-midlands.police.uk between 8am and midnight, or Tel 101 anytime. Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111. Please quote log 2412 of 15 November.
