Appeal for female driver and witnesses after collision involving 11-year-old boy

Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision which injured an 11-year-old boy in Tewkesbury on Monday, January 29.

Officers were contacted following a report that a silver car and a child had been involved in a collision on the pedestrian crossing by Morrisons on Ashchurch Road at around 8.15am.

The boy was crossing the road when a vehicle, which may have been electric, came around the corner and struck him.

The woman driving the car stopped to ask if the boy was "OK" and when he did not respond, she drove off without leaving her details.

The boy was later taken to a minor injury unit by a relative and had sustained bruising to his feet and toes.

Officers are now asking the driver to make contact with police and give an account of what happened.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who has dashcam footage is also being asked to get in touch.

Information can be provided to police by completing the online form and quoting incident 112 of January 29.
