A TEENAGER was left needing hospital treatment after being struck by a hit and run driver this morning.

The 14-year-old boy was crossing Purbrook Way near to the junction with Botley Drive, Havant, at 7.50am when he hit by a small red van which police say didn’t stop at the scene.

The youngster was rushed to Queen Alexandra Hospital, in Cosham, where he was treated for minor injuries, including cuts and bruises.

‘I would also like to appeal directly to the driver of the van. Please make contact with us.’
