Police are appealing to a person who rang in about a serious road collision in Burnley last month to re-contact them.
The person called in the week before Christmas to pass on some anonymous information but officers need to speak to that person again to clarify details that could be crucial to the investigation.
PC Michael Raw, from Pennine Road Policing Unit, said: “I want to reassure this person they can remain anonymous. We just need to ask them one or two questions to clarify some of the details they provided and so I would urge them to make contact with us, or Crimestoppers again if they can.”
The collision happened at around 4pm on Thursday, December 13, when a woman who had parked her dark blue Volkswagen Sharan, on Laithe Street, in Burnley, to pick up her children from nursery. Just after she had helped the children into the car, she was hit by another vehicle travelling along Laithe Street from Springhill Street.
It is thought the lady was hit by the wing mirror of what has been described as a champagne coloured car, similar to a Jaguar, which did not stop at the scene. It is thought the driver of the car, who was a man, may have been elderly and had grey hair. Following the collision, the vehicle left Laithe Street and turned right towards Berry Street.
The woman was taken through to hospital where she received treatment for a broken back and has since been released from hospital to recover at home.
PC Raw said: “I would also continue to appeal to anybody else that witnessed this incident or with any information that could assist with our investigation to contact Lancashire Police.”
