Police are trying to trace a driver who failed to stop following a road traffic collision in which a pedestrian suffered serious injuries.
The 42-year-old woman was walking along a footpath in Victor Road, Colchester, at about 1.35am on Thursday June 15, and was in collision with a black car as she crossed the road.
Investigating officer Pc David Scott said: “She hit the bonnet and fell back onto the road.
“She was taken to hospital with a fractured neck and spine and a foot injury.
“I am appealing for witnesses who saw a dark coloured saloon car in the Barrack Street or Victor Road area at about 1.30am.
“I’d also like to speak to any residents or businesses in the area who have CCTV.”
