Police appeal after pedestrian injured in Lancaster Hit and Run

John Freeman


Police are appealing for witnesses after a car collided with a pedestrian in Lancaster last month.

The incident happened as a 56-year-old local woman was crossing the road on Cable Street outside the bus station at around 7.10pm on Sunday 26th February.

It is thought that a silver Honda Jazz started to travel while the traffic lights were on red and collided with the woman - but failed to stop.

Officers are keen to trace two teenage boys on bicycles who may have witnessed the incident and spoke to the pedestrian just after the collision occurred.

“Thankfully the woman crossing the road wasn’t badly hurt, she was left with minor injuries to her hand and leg," says PC Steve Wood from Lancaster’s Road Policing Unit.

“We are asking the boys described who are thought to have seen what happened or indeed anyone who may have seen anything to come forward and speak with us.”
