Police Hunt Car After Coventry Hit & Run
Police investigating a Coventry hit-and-run that left a child in hospital want to find a silver car that they think was involved.
Police investigating a Coventry hit-and-run that left a child in hospital are appealing for information as they continue to search for a silver car that is believed to have been involved.
Officers were called to Cheveral Avenue in Radford on Monday 20 October around 7.10pm following reports of an 11-year-old in collision with a car.
The car, believed to be a silver two door hatchback, hit the child and then drove away from the scene.
The boy was taken to hospital with multiple injuries. Fortunately he was released from hospital a few days later and continues to recover at home.
Officers are appealing for information as they continue to investigate the collision and trawl CCTV.
PS Laura Floyd, from the force’s traffic department, said: "We believe the vehicle involved is a small silver two door hatchback and following the collision the car would have significant front end damage.
"I am appealing to anyone who has seen a car matching this description to come forward. If you have been asked to repair a car with driver front end damage then I want to hear from you.
"If you have noticed a car in your street with new damage or if any friend or relative cannot explain new damage that has appeared on their car then please call us with information.
"We are determined to find the person responsible for driving away from the collision. I would also appeal to the person driving this car to do the right thing and come forward, we can then get their side of the story.
"Luckily the boy continues to recover from his injuries and specialist officers continue to liaise with the family."
Anyone with information that could help the investigation is urged to call the Traffic department based at Chelmsley Wood on 101. Alternatively people can leave information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers the independent charity on 0800 555 111.
