The victim, a man in his thirties, was seriously injured and has been taken to hospital where he is currently being treated. The second man was unhurt.

Road closures are currently in place on London Road as officers carry out their investigation.

“A man has been very seriously injured in this collision. The driver of the vehicle that inflicted the damage on him has left the scene seemingly without a thought for the victim.

“We are keen to hear from anyone in the Reading or Berkshire area who has seen a dark-coloured car with front end damage – damage that was not there yesterday.”
