A pedestrian remains in hospital with serious injuries more than two weeks after being hit by a car on a busy Swindon road.

The collision happened on Queens Drive at around 3.20am on Saturday, May 25.

Paramedics took a man in his 30s who sustained serious injuries to hospital, where he is still receiving treatment today.

Police have now issued an appeal for information and are asking for the public’s help to identify two people who may be able to progress the investigation into the early hours incident.

A spokesperson said: “We are looking for a male and female that may have interacted with the pedestrian prior to the incident occurring.

“The female is described as wearing a knee length, light coloured coat - possibly camel - with a hood, while carrying a dark backpack.

“The male is described as around 6ft tall, of a slim build wearing a waist length dark jacket, jeans or dark trousers, also carrying a dark backpack.

“Both were walking towards town on the path and are thought to have had a brief verbal exchange with the pedestrian.
