APPEAL: Can you help us find car involved in serious collision in Stoke-on-Trent?


We’re appealing for the public’s help to trace a car which was involved in a collision in Hanley early yesterday morning, Friday 11 December.

The collision happened at around 12.10am in Potteries Way, near the junction with Bucknall New Road, and involved a pedestrian and car.

The pedestrian, who was using crutches as he used the pedestrian crossing, was in collision with a dark coloured saloon car. The vehicle didn’t stop at the scene and drove off towards Lichfield Street.

The pedestrian, a 54-year-old man from Stoke-on-Trent, suffered a serious leg injury and was taken to the Royal Stoke University Hospital where he remains in a stable condition.

An investigation to trace the car involved is underway and we are also keen to speak to two white males who stopped to help the pedestrian. One was on foot and the other was in an unknown car. If this was you please contact us.

If you have any information please contact investigating officer PC Andy Hogan-Hughes at Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting incident 9 of December 11. Alternatively, you can pass information anonymously to independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111 or via their anonymous online report form at www.crimestoppers.org No personal details are taken and you won’t go to court.
