Local woman in hit-and-run

A local woman has been seriously injured in a hit-and-run, after a car mounted the pavement in the Scrooby area of Bassetlaw.

A 56-year-old woman was hit by a silver or grey-coloured car which mounted the pavement on the A614 near Gibbet Hill Lane.

The woman, who was thrown into a hedge following the collision, was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Her injuries are not currently believed to be life-threatening.

The driver then fled the scene in his vehicle.

The incident is said to have occurred at around 6:30am yesterday, Sunday 23 August.

A public appeal has been issued.

Sergeant Mark Lee, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“This was a very serious incident and we urgently need to speak with the driver involved.

“Our investigations are ongoing and I would urge the driver to contact us as soon as possible.

“I am also appealing to anyone who was travelling along the A614 at the relevant time and witnessed the collision to please come forward and I’m urging any motorists who captured any dashcam footage of the incident to please contact us.

“Anyone with information is asked to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 164 of August 23.

“The 101 number is to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call.

“You can also call Crimestoppers, anonymously and in confidence, on 0800 555111.”
