Detectives have told Heart they've identified a car which hit a 93-year-old woman and seriously injured her in a hit-and-run in Solihull.
Isobel Rawes was crossing the Stratford Road in Shirley at around 11.50am on March 24th when she was hit.
The driver of the vehicle failed to stop at the scene and left the victim lying in the carriageway before driving away in the direction of the M42.
Following extensive CCTV enquiries, police have identified the car as a silver coloured Chrysler Voyager. It is believed that the vehicle will have damage to the front passenger side of the car.
Sergeant Adam Green from the Regional Collision Investigation Unit said: “It is not known at this stage why the driver of the vehicle drove away leaving Mrs Rawes lying in the road.
“We are continuing to trawl CCTV in an attempt to identify the vehicle and I would urge anyone that has seen a Chrysler Voyager with damage to the front passenger side to come forward.
"It may be that the driver has confided in a friend or family member or a neighbour has noticed recent damage. It is important that we speak to the driver in order to understand the reasons for the collision and the subsequent driving away from the scene to provide answers to the family of Mrs Rawes."
