Life threatening injuries from ‘hit and run’

Police in Andover are appealing for information after a pedestrian sustained life threatening injuries in a collision in Andover.

Officers were called at 11.08pm on Sunday, 14 October following reports of a collision between a pedestrian and a motorcycle on New Street.

The pedestrian, a 48-year-old man from Andover, suffered life threatening injuries and was taken to Southampton General Hospital.

The rider of the motorcycle made off from the scene before police arrived.

Sergeant Rik Grant, said, “I am appealing for anyone who witnessed this collision to get in touch.  Did you see what happened?

“The motorcyclist left before we arrived.  However he or she left their motorbike at the scene so they must have made off on foot.

It’s likely that this person would have come off their motorbike as a result of the collision.

Did you see someone in the area who looked injured or dishevelled?  Do you think you know who this person is?  I would urge anyone with information to get in touch with us as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police on 101, quoting ‘Operation Rhythm’, or you may call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
