A man has been arrested after an accident in Portsmouth this afternoon.
The incident happened on London Road at around 2.25pm today (September 14).
Police confirmed that a car and a pedestrian were involved in a collision and that the car, a Honda Insight, did not stop at the scene but has since been located.
A Portsmouth man has since been arrested in connection with the incident and remains in police custody at this time.
Sue Taylor, who works at Portsmouth Laundry, said: ‘I heard an almighty bang. I was out the back.
‘The lady looked in a pretty bad way.
‘It is not what you would expect on a Friday afternoon.
‘It’s really shook me. The noise I heard it wasn’t a nice sound.’
London Road was partly closed for several hours this afternoon but has since reopened and the police cordon removed.
