A YOUNG woman is in a critical condition after being struck in a hit and run in Coventry.
Coventry Police posted on facebook: “We’re appealing for witnesses after a woman was seriously injured in a hit-and-run in Tile Hill Lane, Coventry, last night just before 8.40pm.
“The woman, 20, was riding a blue motorcycle when it was struck from behind by a black BMW which failed to stop and was abandoned on nearby Westcotes.
“She was taken to hospital with life-changing injuries and remains in a critical condition today.
“The road was cordoned off for some time to allow for investigations, while the BMW has been recovered and will be forensically tested.”
Det Sgt Paul Hughes, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “We need to hear from anyone who saw the BMW in the Coventry area before the collision.
“It is a distinctive BMW M140i Shadow Edition, which was on false plates at the time.”
