Man left in 'critical condition' following hit and run incident in Gloucester

A man in his 50s was left in a critical condition in hospital after what Gloucestershire Police called a "non-stop collision" in Gloucester on Saturday night.

Police were called to an incident in Kingsholm Road, near to the junction with Skinner Street at around 8.35pm.

The man, a pedestrian, was believed to have been hit by a white or light-coloured Mercedes Saloon with a panoramic sunroof.

He was treated at the scene and taken to Southmead Hospital in Bristol. A Police statement on Sunday said that his condition remained "critical."

The statement added: Investigating officers are appealing for anyone with information about the vehicle to call police on 101 and reference incident 409 of 28 September.

"Information can also be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or was in the area at that time and has dash cam footage, is also asked to call police or submit information online.

"Kingsholm Road was closed for a number of hours overnight while an investigation took place and it reopened in the early hours of Sunday morning."
