POLICE are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a man is believed to have been injured by a vehicle that failed to stop in Burscough in the early hours of Sunday 22nd December 2013.

The incident took place sometime around 2am when a lone 29 year old man has been walking home after a night out at the Briars Hall Hotel along Course Lane in the direction of the M6 motorway.

At some point during his journey he has been struck by a vehicle that failed to stop.

The man was taken to Chorley hospital in their silver Vauxhall Zafira by a middle aged couple who found him on Course Lane.

The couple did not leave their details and police are keen to trace them.   Sergeant Finn Quainton from the Force Road Policing Unit said: “We have been unable to identify the exact location where the collision took place but I am appealing to anyone who might have seen the collision, or a vehicle leaving the scene to contact me.

“Fortunately following medical examination the man’s injuries were not deemed to be serious and consist of severe whiplash however it is obviously important that we establish the full circumstances of what happened.   “It is also vital that we identify the couple that came to this man’s assistance as they could have important information that could assist us with our investigation.

“Anyone with any information about this collision should contact Lancashire Police on 101 quoting log reference LC-20131222-0195.”

People with information can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
