Crime Scene Police Tape

A woman in her 30s has been taken to hospital with a fractured skull after she was hit by a car in Swindon.

Police were called by paramedics just after 9pm last night (Monday 29th October).
 
She was found lying in County Road with serious head injuries by a passer by and taken to Southmead Hospital in Bristol by ambulance.
 
Detective Sergeant Adrian Bray said: "At this early stage of our investigation we believe the woman has been hit by a vehicle, perhaps a car or van, which has failed to stop and left the scene. We want to hear from anyone who was in the County Road area either shortly before or at the time of the incident. We have had some reports that the victim may have been stumbling in and out of the road, so we want to speak to witnesses who may have seen her before she was injured. We also want to hear from motorists who may have dash cam footage, which may hold vital information about what happened and provide further detail about the vehicle involved in the collision."
 
Anyone with information is asked to contact Swindon CID on 101, quoting log 309 of yesterday. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
