The family of a 6-year-old girl knocked down in a hit and run in Barry last night, say the incident was 'an accident waiting to happen'.
Taya Nurton was hit outside her house yesterday evening and taken by air ambulance to the University Hospital of Wales where she is in intensive care.
Today her aunt told Wales Tonight that she believes too many cars and buses are using the road and she wants the council to make it safer. Mariclare Carey-Jones has the full report.
A six-year-old girl has been airlifted to hospital after a hit and run incident with a vehicle in Barry.
Taya Louise Nurton is in intensive care after a collision involving a grey or silver coloured estate-type vehicle on Winston Road just before 5pm yesterday, although her injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
The driver did not stop and left the scene.
Police believe that the driver may not be aware that the child had been knocked over but need to speak to that driver urgently, a spokesperson says.
Police are searching for the driver of a vehicle that collided with a six-year-old girl in Barry yesterday afternoon.
The incident happened around 4.55pm, and the car failed to stop after the collision.

It would appear that a grey or silver coloured estate type vehicle was travelling along the road at a relatively slow speed when it has come into contact with a young child.
Police would also like to speak to the drivers of any grey or silver coloured Estate vehicles which may have been in the area at the relevant time.
