A pedestrian sustained serious injuries and was lest unconscious following a fail-to-stop collision in High Wycombe on Friday 4th January 2019.

The collision occurred at around 6.30pm when a pedestrian was crossing the A40 Oxford Road at the traffic light controlled crossing close to the Chiltern Taps public house. The  pedestrian, a man aged in his fifties, was struck by a 4×4 vehicle which failed to stop at the scene of the collision.

Investigating officer PC Tom Smith, of the Joint Operations Unit for Roads Policing, based at Amersham police station, said: ‘The impact of this collision was substantial so it is likely that the driver would have been aware they had hit something or someone.

The vehicle is believed to be a 4×4 type vehicle, possibly blue or green. I would like to appeal to the driver of the vehicle involved to contact police as soon as possible. I am also keen to speak to anyone who witnessed this collision or saw the vehicle driving away.
