OFFICERS are renewing their appeal for witnesses following a hit and run last year which left a man with life-changing injuries.

The officer leading the investigation to the serious incident, which happened in Prestatyn on Wednesday, December 9 2020, has issued a fresh appeal for information.

The incident involved a small dark car. The car hit a 64-year-old man who was walking along Bodnant Avenue with the junction of Nant Hall Road at around 6.15pm.

The car had travelled westbound from Gronant Road along Nant Hall Road and had turned right onto Bodnant Avenue. The driver of the car initially stopped, pulled the casualty to one side and then left the scene.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing, and 12 months on from the incident – police have issued a fresh appeal in the hope that anybody with information may come forward.

PC Duncan Logan of the Roads Policing Unit said: “One year has passed since the serious collision which has left an innocent man with life changing injuries.We are continuing to carry out a range of inquiries into the collision but are appealing to the public who may know something and hold the key to this investigation.

“Somebody out there must know something. This time last year they may have noticed suspicious behaviour in their partner, relative, friend or colleague. They may have also noticed that they had suffered unexplained damage to their vehicle.

“Despite extensive inquiries locally and with several businesses and nearby properties, including reviewing hours of CCTV footage, we are yet to trace the driver.

“If you have any information, even if you believe it to be insignificant, I would urge you to get in touch as soon as possible to assist with our ongoing investigation.”
