HARROWING FOOTAGE RELEASED BY POLICE AS PART OF NEW APPEAL
THIS is the horrifying moment a hitand-run victim tries to race out of the way of the oncoming car that left him with critical injuries.
The harrowing footage shows the 64-year-old victim desperately running to try and avoid the crash.
It stops the moment before he is mowed down by the White Audi on St James Lane, Willenhall, on Monday, October 8.
West Midlands Police has released the footage in a bid to trace the white Audi involved.
Officers are asking for the public’s help in tracing the driver and the car.
Parts left at the scene indicate that it is an Audi A3 or S3 manufactured in 2012/13.
Sergeant Alan Wood, of the force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, urged the driver to come forward and “start to put this right”.
He said: “I would appeal to the driver of this vehicle to think about the consequences of their actions and identify yourself to us.
“The impact has left a man critically injured but you now have an opportunity to at least start to put this right by handing yourself in and doing the decent thing.
“We have released CCTV to get help from the community of Coventry – does anyone who was in the area on the night of the collision or have any dash-cam footage of a white Audi that may give us a registration number of this vehicle?”
There are several ways to get in touch with the Serious Collision Investigation Unit if you have any information, witnessed the hit-and-run or have dashcam footage that could help police.
You can call the force on 101, quoting 2251 from October 8.
