Did you witness OAP failing to stop after Crash in Fareham

Police are appealing for witnesses following a fail to stop collision involving a car and a pedestrian in Fareham.

At around 12.30pm on Wednesday 26 July, a 59-year-old woman was crossing Osborn Road, just south of the Ashcroft Arts Centre, when she was involved in a collision with a car described as a red Nissan Micra or similar.

The pedestrian suffered head and face injuries as a result, and was taken to Queen Alexandra Hospital for treatment.

The driver, described as an elderly man, did not remain at the scene.

Officers would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision.

PC Peter Sarginson, from the Havant Roads Policing Unit, said: “We would like to hear from anyone who saw this incident take place, or can assist us with identifying the vehicle and the driver involved.

“This area of road would have likely had a constant flow of traffic and occasional pedestrians using the footpath, so it is likely that someone saw what happened.

“We are particularly keen to trace a woman at the scene who we believe has useful information for us, but who had already left the area by the time police arrived.

“In addition, I would urge the drive of the small red car to come forward and speak to us so we can establish exactly what has happened.”


If you have any information relating to this case, please call 101 quoting reference ‘44170287271’, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously.
