Police in Weymouth are appealing for witnesses after a 'hit and run' incident in the Westham area of the town.
Yesterday morning at approximately 8.40am, a mother and her 6-year-old son approached the pedestrian crossing outside the Londis store on Abbotsbury Road.
A car stopped allowing them both to cross, but then pulled away striking the young boy. The vehicle failed to stop and drove off without checking on the welfare of the child.
Luckily the young victim only suffered minor injuries in the incident and did not require hospital treatment.
– PC Kelvin Edge, Dorset Police
I am appealing for anyone with information about this incident to contact Dorset Police urgently.
The driver will undoubtedly be aware they struck the young boy and drove off without any regard for his welfare, and I would urge them to do the right thing and speak with the police.
The victim is extremely lucky to have only suffered minor injuries, but nevertheless, this has been a very frightening experience for him and his mother.
The car was a blue coloured hatchback and the driver a middle aged woman with short dark hair and glasses.
All calls will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 or anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
