Eastham Street Hit and Run - Witness Appeal

Lancaster are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a woman was injured by a car that failed to stop at the scene in Lancaster.

 The collision took place at around 7.30pm on Tuesday evening on Eastham Street. The lady was getting out of her car after parking up on the road and as she opened her door to get out of the vehicle, a passing Ford KA hit the door of the vehicle, trapping her leg.

The driver did not stop at the scene and drove away down Prospect Street and onto Westham Street.

The lady attended Royal Lancaster Infirmary to be assessed for a minor leg injury.

PC John Stephenson said: “An investigation is underway into the circumstances of exactly what happened but I would appeal to anybody that witnessed this collision or for the driver of the car involved to contact police on 101.”
