Police are appealing for information after a three-year-old boy was injured in a hit and run.
The youngster suffered a broken leg after being hit by a vehicle that failed to stop in Accrington on Thursday, August 29.
The collision took place around 7.50pm on Monk Street close to the junction with Countess Street when the boy, believed to have been with his mum, was hit by a vehicle as he crossed the road.
The child, who lives locally, was taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital with a broken left femur.
Residents on Monk Street spoke of their shock over the incident.
One, who asked not to be named, said: “I didn’t see I just saw the police come after.
“It’s terrible though. I don’t think anything like this has ever happened round here before.”
PC Gary Taylor, of Lancashire Police, urged anyone with information to contact the police.
He said: “I would appeal to any witnesses that saw this collision or for the driver of the vehicle involved to come forward and call police on 101 so we can establish the circumstances of exactly what has happened.”
There is no description available of the vehicle involved.
