Police hunt for hit-and-run driver on M27

Daily Echo: Police hunt for hit-and-run driver on M27 Police hunt for hit-and-run driver on M27

POLICE are hunting a driver who failed to stop after hitting a pedestrian, leaving him with a broken arm and leg.

Officers say it is possible the motorist may have thought they had hit an animal and was not aware that a pedestrian was involved. The incident happened at around 2am on Sunday on Stoneham Lane near junction five of the M27.

Police say the vehicle was travelling towards Chandler’s Ford when it collided with the 31-year-old man, who suffered a broken arm and leg.

PC Martin Vine said: “With very limited lighting along this stretch, it may be that a driver believed they had collided with an animal and is unaware that a pedestrian was involved.

“However, I do need to speak to this driver, so if it was you or you know who it may have been, please contact me.”

Anyone with any information should contact PC Martin Vine at Totton Roads Policing Unit on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

I know the Aunty of the victim, I think. She mentioned to me that her nephew had been hit and run and was in hospital so I think this might be the same person.

Get well soon lad!
