Police are renewing an appeal for information one year after 56-year-old Peter Topping died in a fatal incident in Goldthorpe.
At around 8.25pm on Thursday, 29 December 2011, it is believed that Mr Topping was lying in the carriageway on Co-operative Street, Goldthorpe, when an unknown vehicle drove over him causing fatal injuries.
The driver of the vehicle failed to stop at the scene, and it is reported that the vehicle continued along Co-operative Street, turning left onto Doncaster Road. Despite extensive enquiries in the area and assistance from the local community, neither the driver nor the vehicle has been traced.
Police are interested in speaking to the occupants of three vehicles that are believed to have been in the area at the time and may have witnessed the incident: a dark coloured Mercedes ‘C’ class, a dark coloured Land Rover Freelander, and a silver coloured Audi A3.
Police are appealing for witnesses after two children were injured during a collision in Sheffield.
At 5pm on Saturday, a red vehicle turned into Hinde Street from Robey Street, when it's thought the vehicle began to reverse and collided with two children who were crossing the road behind the vehicle.
It is believed the vehicle failed to stop and left the scene, travelling back onto Robey Street.
The children, a seven-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl, were taken to Sheffield Children’s Hospital. The boy has a suspected broken ankle and the girl a broken right ankle, chipped tooth and minor grazes.
Anyone with information should contact South Yorkshire Police on 101.

The police watchdog, the Independent Police Complaints Commission, is independently investigating the involvement police had with a car before and after a crash which killed a 12-year-old boy.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. The car also collided with other vehicles.
The IPCC wants to speak to anyone who saw a Seat Ibiza that had been seen by police and pulled-over in a lay-by.
A maroon Seat, registration number EF59 ULN, was first seen by police at 6.45pm at the junction of Fenby Avenue and Sticker Lane in Bradford. Police followed it up Sticker Lane then into Rooley Lane. The car and police travelled along Rooley Lane and on to the M606 until the Chain Bar roundabout.
It is important that the events that led up to and followed this tragic incident are investigated fully and that we understand the exact nature of the contact between the police and this car. That is why the IPCC needs anyone who saw the Seat Ibiza to contact us.
