The hunt is on for a man involved in a collision with two people near a Southend nightclub.
The driver of a black BMW fled the scene following the collision on Lucy Road shortly after 4 on Saturday morning.
The pedestrians were taken to hospital for treatment – but their injuries aren’t life threatening.
Officers are investigating whether the incident is linked to an altercation outside Talk nightclub earlier in the night – which is believed to have involved both parties.
Anyone who saw either incident or who know who may have been in the BMW is asked to contact police on 101. The officer in the case is Sgt Mark Ammon of the Laindon road policing unit.
