Hit And Run In Houghton Regis
Police want to trace the driver who failed to stop after colliding into a motorcyclist.
A motorcyclist has suffered what police have described as 'life changing injuries' following a hit and run in Houghton Regis.
It happened in Parkside Drive at around 5.30pm on Monday 2nd Dcemeber, when the 23-year-old moped rider collided with a black VW Golf.
The impact from the crash left him with serious injuries to both his legs. He was airlifted to Addenbrooke's Hospital, where he's still getting treatment.
The car didn't stop at the scene but was found, with no one inside, by police in Gilpin Close a short time later.
Enquiries are now underway to establish who was driving it.
Pc David Holmes, from Beds, Cambs and Herts Roads Policing Unit is investigating, he said: "This young man has been left with terrible life changing injuries.
"He has already undergone lengthy surgery and has a long road of recovery ahead of him.
"We do not know why the driver left the scene of the collision but it is vital we identify this person or people who were in the VW Golf at the time.
"If anyone remembers seeing the car, which has significant damage to the wind screen, being dumped in Gilpin Drive please contact the police in confidence."
An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Leonne Weeks, 16, who was found dead on a path in Rotherham.
