Appeal after man seriously injured in hit and run

Police are appealing for witnesses to a hit and run collision in which a 26 year old man suffered life threatening injuries. 

Chris Hood was crossing Brays Road, Sheldon at around 10:10pm last night (18th September) when an unknown vehicle struck him, before making off towards Radleys Island and turning left into Sheldon Heath Road. 

Chris needed life-saving treatment at the scene and was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where he remains in a critical condition.

Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes from the force’s Collision Investigation Unit said: “Chris was making his way home from work when the collision occurred. We are keeping an open mind with regards to the identity of the vehicle and continue to explore a number of lines of enquiry. 

Officers from our dedicated Family Liaison Team are currently supporting Chris’ family and they have chosen to release his picture to help support our appeal. I would ask for anyone with information to contact myself of my team giving reference 2625 18/09/17.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Collision Investigation Team on 101 giving reference 2625 18/09/17, by email at Fl_COLLISION_INVEST@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
