Merseyside Police is appealing for witnesses after two teenage boys suffered injuries during a fail to stop collision in Crosby on Monday, 10 November.

Officers were called to Myers Road East, close to Sacred Heart High School, at around 9.05pm, following a report that a car had mounted the kerb and collided with two boys aged 13 and 15 years.  The car didn’t stop at the scene and was last seen heading towards Liverpool Road.
Patrols from the Matrix Serious Organised Crime attended the scene and enquiries were carried out in the area.  Luckily, both boys only suffered minor injuries.
An investigation into the full circumstances surrounding the incident is continuing.
Constable Andy Roper, from the MSOC Roads Policing Unit, said: “Luckily both boys involved in the collision escaped with scratches, bumps to the head and broken teeth.
“It could however have ended up in them both suffering serious injuries, or even worse, and we are extremely keen to trace the driver responsible.
“The car involved in the collision is described as a silver saloon and I would appeal to anyone who may have seen a similar car in the Crosby area a week last Monday to get in touch with us.
“I would also urge anyone who has seen or knows of a silver saloon car which has suffered any form of damage to the front end to speak to us as soon as possible.”
Anyone with information can call officers from the MSOC Roads Policing Unit on 0151 777 5747 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
