Shocking CCTV footage has emerged showing the moment a man was left for dead following a hit-and-run in Slough.

The man in his 50s was mowed down by a speeding vehicle when he crossed the road in Knolton Way. Despite causing potentially life-threatening injuries to the victim, the unidentified driver failed to stop, speeding off and showing no regard for the man he knocked down.

The victim did require treatment for a head injury at Wexham Park Hospital but has since been discharged having made a recovery.

Investigating officer PC Chris Fallon of the Roads Policing Team said: “This was a very distressing incident and left a man needing hospital treatment. The driver did not stop and left the man in the middle of the road injured following this incident.

“He has since been discharged from hospital, but the consequences of this driver’s actions could have been a lot more severe.

“We would really like to talk to anyone who has witnessed his incident or anyone who recognises the vehicle from before or after this collision.”

The harrowing hit-and-run occurred on Monday, December 3 at 7.10pm. If you have any information about the incident, contact the Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101 quoting reference number 43180371551 or by making a report on the Thames Valley Police website.
