Lancashire Telegraph: Police appeal for information after boy clipped by vehicle in Colne Police appeal for information after boy clipped by vehicle in Colne

POLICE are appealing for information after reports that a 12-year-old boy was clipped by a vehicle in Colne on Friday night.

The incident is believed to have taken place on Newmarket Street, near to the junction with Church Street in Colne just after 8pm.

The boy, from Earby, was crossing the road towards Colne town centre, when he has been clipped by a silver vehicle.

His father found him sat on the corner of the kerb, complaining of a hurt ankle.

He was taken to Airedale hospital where he underwent surgery for a broken ankle.

Police are appealing for witnesses and for the driver of the car to contact them.

PC Gavin Wesley from Colne Road Policing said: “I would appeal to anybody that witnessed this incident or for the driver of the car involved to contact police on 101 so we can establish the circumstances of exactly what happened.

“An unknown man, described as Asian, stayed with the boy until his dad arrived and police need to speak with him. It is believed he was the driver of the car and left once he believed the boy was okay.

“Anyone with information should contact Lancashire Police on 101.”
