Following a fail-to-stop collision in Levenshulme on Saturday 13 August, Greater Manchester Police (GMP) has released CCTV footage of the incident.
The footage has been shared with the public in the hope that someone will recognise the driver of the vehicle, who reversed into a 67-year-old woman.
At around 4.40pm, the lady was crossing the road on Chapel Street, whilst the vehicle was waiting at the junction. The driver reversed into the lady, knocking her to the floor, as can be seen in the video.
After realising he had collided with something, the driver got out of his vehicle to see the lady lying on the ground. He then proceeded to get back into his vehicle and drive away.
Fortunately, this wasn’t a fatal incident, but the lady has suffered a fractured arm and a broken ankle.
The perpetrator of the fail-to-stop incident is a man in his 20s or 30s, with short black hair and a large build.
Police Constable Peter Hamnett-Steen of GMP has said, “I am keen to trace the driver of the car, who left a woman injured in the road and then callously fled”.
If you are the driver, or know who the driver is, you must report to the police ASAP.
