CCTV appeal after man is injured in fail to stop collision in Burscough

POLICE have issued CCTV images of a man and a woman they need to trace after a man was 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 leaving a party at the Briars Hall Hotel in Lathom.

He was walking along the A5209 towards Newburgh when at some point during his journey he has been struck by a vehicle that failed to stop.

The man was driven through Eccleston to Chorley hospital in a 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.

PC Pat Pepper from South Roads Policing Unit said: “Both the man, woman and their vehicle have been captured on hospital CCTV and the woman in particular is wearing a very distinctive jumper.

“The couple told the injured man that they had been visiting their daughter in Southport and I am trying to identify them or their vehicle in an effort to eliminate them from my enquiries.

“Fortunately following medical examination the man’s injuries were not deemed to be serious and consisted of severe whiplash however it is obviously important that we establish the full circumstances of what happened.

“Anyone that recognises the couple or the car in the CCTV or 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.
