£1000 reward for information over hit and run

Police investigating a fatal hit and run in Poole are now offering a reward of up to £1000 for information.

Christopher Colegate, 69, from Poole, was tragically struck by a vehicle which failed to stop at the junction of Darby’s Lane and Heath Avenue on Friday night.

I urge the driver involved in this collision to please do the right thing and get in touch. This has caused Mr Colegate’s family great distress. We know the driver would have been aware of the collision and I urge him or her to get in contact with us immediately. This will not go away; we will find you. In particular, we would like to speak with the driver of a silver family sized car travelling in Darby’s Lane toward Johnston Road, a family sized car that turned right from Darby’s Lane into Heath Avenue and a family sized car that turned left from Darby’s Lane into Popes Road."

– Inspector Matt Butler, Dorset Police
