Manchester Hit-And-Run: Police Appeal For Help

Police have released CCTV footage of a shocking hit-and-run in Manchester city centre in the hope of tracing the driver.

At around 2:30am on Tuesday August 21 last year a Vauxhall Corsa collided with three men, hurling one of them down the street before speeding off.

One of men was so seriously injured that he remains in hospital almost six months later. Another broke his leg, while the third man escaped with minor injuries.

Police have now issued an image of a man they wish to speak to in connection with what happened.

Detective Constable Marie Eldred said: "While three men were injured, Michael Ward in particular has suffered catastrophic injuries that he will never fully recover from.

"If anyone knows anything about the incident, those in the car or thinks they recognise the man in the CCTV image please get in touch."

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 3521/4288/3502 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
