A man in his 80s was taken to hospital after a collision with a car in York.
It happened on the junction of North Moor Road and New Lane in Huntington at around 6.40am on Friday (21 October).
The man was riding his mobility scooter across the pedestrian crossing towards Huntington Working Men’s Club and “was struck by a dark coloured vehicle causing him to fall out of his scooter onto the road,” say police.
The male driver of the vehicle helped the elderly male to his feet and over to the pavement.
Another member of the public also came to the man’s assistance. The driver then left the scene without providing any contact details, driving off on North Moor Road.
The injured man was able to drive his scooter to a nearby store where he was helped by members of staff who rang for an ambulance.
He was taken to hospital by paramedics and later discharged with significant swelling and bruising to his face. His mobility scooter also was damaged.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “We are appealing for the driver of the car involved and the person that came to man’s assistance to contact us along with any witnesses to the collision, in particular, anyone who recalls seeing the vehicle, or has any dashcam footage, to get in touch as soon as possible to assist the investigation.”
