A man who stopped to help a motorist change a flat tyre in Merseyside has been injured by a 'hit-and-run' driver.
It happened on Woolfall Crescent in Huyton at around 9 PM on Tuesday.
Merseyside Police say they were called following a report that a car - believed to be a silver VW Golf - had been in collision with a 21-year-old man as he helped another motorist change a flat tyre.
Following the collision, the driver failed to stop and the offender and vehicle have not been located.
The pedestrian sustained minor back injuries as a result of the collision and was taken to hospital for treatment. His condition is described as stable.

Officers in Liverpool want to crack down on anti social behaviour with the threat of kicking them out of the city centre.
But there are worries it could stigmatise some vulnerable people.
Our Merseyside correspondent Andy Bonner has the details:
Merseyside Police has issued an appeal for help to find an elderly man from the Wirral who went missing from a care home late on Sunday night.
Officers have been searching Hoylake and the surrounding area overnight after Edward Don disappeared from Hilbre Court nursing home on Barton Road.
He was reported missing at around 9pm.
Care home staff are becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare.
He is described as white, around 5ft 4ins tall, of heavy build with a predominantly bald head and grey hair. He was last seen wearing a dark blue jumper, black trousers and brown shoes with Velcro straps.
Anyone with information or who may have seen Mr Don is asked to call 101 straight away.

Police on Merseyside say they have discovered a cannabis farm with an estimated annual yield of 1.5 million pounds.
Officers recovered 415 plants from nine rooms of a two storey flat at Rake Lane in Wallasey today.
A quantity of plant matter was also recovered. Merseyside Police’s specialist cannabis dismantling team attended to remove the plants.
An investigation is ongoing.
"Cannabis cultivation by criminal gangs can cause serious harm in our communities.
"Criminal groups involved in the cultivation of cannabis are usually involved in other serious organised crime.
"Our communities can help us stop these groups, who are only interested in making money, from turning houses and flats into potential death traps."
Police say some of the signs that cannabis is being grown are:
• Strange smells and sounds
• Frequent and varied visitors to a property, often at unusual times
• Gardening equipment being taken into a property, such as plant pots, fertiliser, fans and industrial lighting
• Windows are sealed and covered or the curtains are permanently closed
• Heat from an adjoining property
• Birds gathering on a roof in cold weather
• Individually these activities may seem commonplace, however, together may indicate something more sinister
