A WOMAN on a mobility scooter has suffered injuries after a car crashed into her at a crossing.

The 61-year-old, from Fareham, was left with bruising to her head and right side of her body.

She was on Gosport Road crossing into Stubbington when a dark coloured vehicle hit her and drove off.

It happened just before 10.30am last Wednesday.

Hampshire police have today released details of the incident and are now appealing for witnesses.

The driver did not stop and went off toward the Red Lion roundabout.

Investigating officer PC Nicola Gawthorpe said: ‘This collision has left the woman very shaken, affecting her confidence in going out on her own.

‘I am appealing for witnesses to come forward with any information that may assist with identifying the driver or the vehicle involved.’

Anyone with information can call PC Gawthorpe at Park Gate police on 101.

Alternatively, call the independent Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111 to remain anonymous.
