Run down on a pedestrian crossing

An 11-year-old girl was hit by a car as she used a pedestrian crossing in Leigh.

After the collision, which occurred at about 4.45pm on Monday, August 24, the blue car involved initially stopped but then left the scene.

The girl suffered a broken leg in the collision, which occurred on the A13 London Road, at the pedestrian crossing near to Waitrose.


POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a young child received serious head injuries after being struck by a car on a pedestrian crossing in Salisbury.

The accident occurred at about 11am on August 18 at the pelican crossing at the junction between Castle Road and Blue Boar Row.

A 25-year-old woman was crossing the road carrying the child when they were hit by a green Ford Mondeo.
