Appeal for man to come forward following hit and run
POLICE have issued a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with a hit and run on Friday.
They are renewing their appealing, which also includes a make of car they are looking for, following the incident in Dudmore Road at 12.44pm, when a motorist failed to stop after hitting a pedestrian.
The victim was left with serious leg injuries and was taken to Great Western Hospital before being transferred to John Radcliffe Hospital.
Sergeant Barrie Card, from the Serious Collision Investigation Team, said: “I am glad to say that the pedestrian who was struck by the car who is being treated for his injuries at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, is responding well to his treatment and making steady progress.
“Officers from the collision investigation team have been working hard over the past couple of days trying to piece together what exactly happened that afternoon.
“The officers involved in the investigation are keen to locate a grey/blue BMW 5 or 7 series saloon, pre-2004, which may have damage to its offside including damage to the offside mirror.
“We would like to speak with the person shown in the attached CCTV. We appeal to him, or anyone who knows him, to make contact with us as he may be able to help us with our enquiries.
“We would also like to hear from anyone who was in the Co-Op shop, in Groundwell Road, shortly before this incident and any witnesses who may have seen this car in the area at that time or who witnessed the collision to come forward if they have not already done so.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Wiltshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information may be left anonymously.
