A MAN was left with a broken hip after being the victim of a hit-and-run.

The 42-year-old was crossing Festing Road in Southsea, at the junction of Albert Road, between 10pm and 10.20pm on Saturday, September 26 when he was struck by a small dark car.

The car had been turning right from Albert Road into Festing Road but failed to stop after the impact and then continued south on Festing Road.

The man was thrown up in the air by the impact but did not realise how badly hurt he was to start with. He later discovered he had a broken hip and will now have to undergo surgery.

Police are now trying to indentify the car and are appealing for any witnesses or anyone who has any information about the car of who was driving.

Those with information are asked to call PC Andrew Daw at the Roads Police Unit based in Havant on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
