A HIT and run incident in Altrincham left a man with a fractured jaw.

The 56-year-old victim was walking along the pavement of Stockport Road when he was hit by a car from behind, just after midnight on Friday, January 25.

The man had been heading towards the town centre, but the car drove off in an unknown direction.

The 56-year-old was taken to Wythenshawe Hospital where he received surgery on his jaw.

Insp Phil Bromley, from the Road Policing Unit, said: “The victim unfortunately was unable to get a description of the car but we believe there may be damage to its nearside wheels and scuff marks to the bonnet.

“I would ask anyone who may have witnessed the incident or was in the area close to Stockport Road with its junction with Parkway, to come forward.

The victim is lucky his injuries are not worse and I would appeal to the driver directly to hand themselves in.”

Anyone with information should phone the Road Policing unit at Leigh on 0161 856 7202.
