An investigation has been launched after the occupants of a car failed to stop, having hit a pedestrian who is now in a critical condition in hospital.

Detectives are appealing for witnesses after it happened on Castlemaine Avenue in Gillingham at around 8:50pm yesterday evening.

The victim was taken to a London hospital, where he remains in a critical condition.

The people in the car have been described as two dark-skinned men in their twenties, wearing casual clothes.
