Police hunt man on mobility scooter who knocked over elderly woman

Police are investigating after an elderly woman was knocked down and seriously hurt by a man on a mobility scooter in Colchester.

The woman was struck from behind while she was standing at a bus stop near the cemetery in Mersea Road on September 1 and dragged along the pavement.

The driver apparently stopped before moving off into Abbotts Road.

The victim was left with two fractures to her face and numerous cuts and bruises.

“This was a very distressing incident which left an elderly victim seriously injured and in shock. I would appeal for anybody who saw the incident and who has not yet come forward to contact us. It was in a residential area at a busy time of day, and it be that you haven’t come forward yet – if this is you, and you do have information, please contact me.”
