A 68-year-old man is still fighting for his life after a suspected hit-and-run last month in Thornton Heath.

At about 2pm on Wednesday, March 7, the victim was found collapsed in London Road. It is thought he was hit by a slow moving car.

Although the driver of the grey people carrier in question stopped and helped direct traffic, he left before emergency services arrived. He is described as white and was wearing a high visibility sleeveless jacket.

Police are appealing for information on the driver’s identity.

The victim remains in hospital where his injuries have been deemed life threatening.

Detective constable Sue Chalmers, from the Met’s roads and transport policing Command, said: “The man has sadly suffered serious injuries as a result of this incident and I am keen to get to the bottom of exactly what happened.

“I believe the driver of the grey car stopped at the scene and helped direct traffic but left before the ambulance service arrived. I would like to speak to him as he may have more information about what happened in the lead up to the incident.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 quoting reference CAD 4311/16 March.
