A HIT-AND-RUN driver is being hunted after he smashed into a pregnant woman and left her in the road, The Sun reports. The 34-year-old victim, who is five months pregnant, suffered broken bones when she was thrown on to the bonnet of the car. Her unborn child was not harmed in the incident.
Police say she was crossing Bury New Road in Salford at around 7.35pm on November 23 when she was hit with a dark VW Polo or Golf. The terrifying incident saw the woman carried on the bonnet of the car for a short distance before it stopped. The driver got out and words were exchanged before he got back in the car and drove off.
He is described as white, tall, aged in his 20s or 30s and wore casual clothing. Pc Mike Connolly, of Greater Manchester Police, said: “The woman is five months pregnant but thankfully the baby is okay. “However, the victim suffered broken bones in her right arm and leg and will undergo surgery soon.
“I would ask anyone who may have witnessed the collision or knows who the driver is to call police as soon as possible.” Anyone with information about the incident should phone police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
