Girl Hit By Van In Village Near Chelmsford
A 14-year-old girl has been hit by a van which then drove off in a village near Chelmsford.
The teenager, who is from Hockley, was with a group of pupils taking part in a school activity weekend when it happened.
They were walking along Church Street, near the junction with Colam Street, in Little Baddow at around 10.30 on Sunday (11 May) when a white dropside van passed the group and its wing mirror struck the girl on the back of the head, knocking her to the ground.
She was taken to Broomfield Hospital and was treated for a cut to her head. She allowed home later that day.
The van, which was carrying tools and logs on the back, failed to stop and was last seen turning into Holybread Lane.
Police want to hear from any witnesses - especially the driver of a small black car travelling behind the van - or anyone with information about the vehicle.
Anyone who can help should contact the investigating officer Pc Andy Sumner of Chelmsford Road Policing Office on 101 or email him at email@example.com
