A MAN in his 20s has been taken to hospital after a hit and run in Bromsgrove.

At around 12pm today (June 26) a pedestrian was hit by a car on Byron Way in Catshill.

The man was taken to hospital for his injuries.

The car involved is described as a black Ford, but the model is not known at this stage.

After the crash, the vehicle left the scene towards Blake Road.

PC Michael Smith said: “The driver clearly knows they hit a pedestrian and failed to stop at the scene of the collision – I would urge them to come forward. We are looking for any witnesses to the collision to come forward or anyone who was passing through the area this morning who may have dash-cam footage prior to the collision.”  

Police say the black Ford car will have sustained a dented bonnet.
