A TEENAGER is still ‘virtually unresponsive’ following a hit-and-run.

Mikey Ford, 19, suffered a serious head injury on the northbound carriageway of the A32 in Fareham, just before the Quay Street roundabout.

His father, Darren, set up a Facebook page for well-wishers to post messages of support to the family.

The page ‘Get Well Soon Mikey’ has attracted nearly 700 likes.

However, following a Facebook post in which Mr Ford spoke about Mikey’s ‘good progress’ earlier this week, he wrote another post apologising for making it seem Mikey was ‘a lot better.’

He wrote: ‘While Mikey is improving, he is in no way getting better yet.

‘He is still very, very poorly. He is still virtually unresponsive, unless shaken and called repeatedly. Then he only opens his eyes momentarily.’

Dozens of friends and well-wishers continue to send the family messages of support.

Police said the car involved was described as a three-door, silver car, possibly a Vauxhall Astra, which is likely to have damage to the front offside or windscreen.

The hit-and-run- happened at around 11pm on Friday, July 8.
