Manchester police are appealing for information after a hit-and-run incident which left an elderly woman with fractured bones.

CCTV footage of the incident shows a car waiting at a junction, suddenly reverse and hit a 67-year-old woman who attempts to cross the road behind the vehicle.

The driver then gets out of the car, sees the woman on the ground attempting to sit upright, quickly gets back in the car and drives away.

The driver of the silver Honda Civic is described as a man of large build, in his 20s or 30s with short black hair, shaved at the sides.

The woman was taken to hospital where she was treated for a broken ankle and a fractured arm.

The incident occurred on Chapel Street shortly after 4.40pm on Saturday 13 August 2016.

Police constable Peter Hamnett-Steen of the Manchester police said that they are “keen to trace the driver of the car, who left a woman injured in the road and then callously fled”.

If you know who was driving the car, or if you were the driver, I urge you to get in touch with police.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 0161 856 6000, 101 quoting incident number 1669 13/08/16 or the independent charity, Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
