Police hunt driver after hit and run


Police are searching for the driver involved in a suspected hit and run in Sunderland which saw one man taken to hospital.

Officers were called to North Moor Lane in Sunderland at around 2.15pm on Wednesday, following a collision between a moped and a car.

The male rider of the moped was taken to hospital with non-life threatenin­g injuries and has since been discharged.

But the car that was involved – believed to be a red Nissan – had already left the scene, and police are now looking to trace the driver as part of their ongoing investigat­ion.

PC Graham Smith , of Northumbri­a Police, said: “This was a nasty collision which resulted in a man being taken to hospital.”

“We are appealing for the driver of the vehicle involved to come forward.”
