Appeal after Blackburn hit-and-run leaves pensioner seriously injured

Friday, March 29, 2024

We are appealing for witnesses and footage after a pedestrian was seriously injured in a fail-to-stop collision in Blackburn.

Our officers were called to Audley Range at 1.50pm today (29th March) following reports a man in his 90s had been struck by a grey BMW 318d (pictured) at the junction of Lambeth Street.

The male pedestrian suffered a serious leg injury and has been taken to hospital where he remains.
The driver of the BMW failed to stop at the scene and remains outstanding.

We are appealing for anyone with information on the whereabouts of the driver to come forward. We also want to hear from any witnesses or anybody with dashcam, CCTV, mobile phone or doorbell footage which has captured the BMW before or after the collision.

Sgt Pete Fyans, of our Road Policing Unit, said: “This collision has left a pensioner seriously injured and my thoughts are with him and his loved ones at this time. I want to appeal directly to the driver of the BMW to do the right thing and make contact with the police straight away.”

Anyone with information or footage is asked to email [email protected] or call 101, quoting log 670 of 29th March 2024.
