A man suffered a double fracture to his arm and ligament damage to his foot after a car mounted the pavement in Bletchley.

Thames Valley Police is now appealing for information after the incident yesterday

Just after midnight, a silver vehicle was travelling on the Buckingham Road, Bletchley, towards the junction with Sherwood Drive, when it approached two pedestrians who were walking on the footpath towards Shenley Road.

The vehicle mounted the pavement and collided with one of the pedestrians, a 56-year-old man who was walking with his wife. The nearside wing mirror hit the man’s left arm and knocked him down. The driver then drove away without stopping to check the condition of the injured man or leave any details.

The injured man was taken to Milton Keynes General Hospital where it was discovered he had suffered a double fracture to his arm and ligament damage to his right foot.

Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident or know someone who owns a silver vehicle and has recently lost a wing mirror to come forward, as they may have information vital to the investigation.

Anyone with information is urged to contact PC Barry McLaughlin at Milton Keynes Roads Policing Department via the 24-hour non-emergency number 101. If you do not want to talk to the police, call the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
