Girl, 17, hurt in Morecambe hit-and-run

[P]OLICE are appealing for witnesses after a 17-year-old girl was injured following a fail-to-stop collision in Torrisholme, Morecambe.

Police were called around 9.40pm yesterday (December 20) following reports of an accident on Lancaster Road close to the One Stop Store.

A 17-year-old girl had been riding a moped in the direction of Torrisholme Road when a Ford Transit style van pulled out from the nearside, causing the teenager to swerve and fall from the vehicle.

The van failed to stop at the scene and made off in the direction of Torrisholme Road, with the victim requiring treatment at Royal Lancaster Infirmary for minor injuries.

Officers are appealing for information following the incident and would be keen to speak to anyone who can assist with their enquiries.

PC Martin Wilcock, of Lancashire Police, said: “We would like to speak to witnesses following a fail to stop collision in Morecambe.

“The moped rider was taken to hospital and we want to trace the driver of a white Ford Transit style van with lettering on the side and a roof rack.

“It will have been busy at the time with people visiting the takeaways and shops on Lancaster Road and I believe someone must have seen what happened.

“Can I please ask for any witnesses who may have information to come forward and equally the driver of the van, if they see this appeal, to contact police immediately.”

Anyone with information can contact police on 101 quoting log reference 1400 of December 20.
