Another witness, who did not want to be named, said: “The guy hit him and he didn’t stop. Two policemen were even there. They were walking down the road and they saw this. When he hit the guy, instead of stopping, he pushed the car, swerved and then just ran away.”
Police confirmed there was a “fail to stop collision”.
No arrests have been made and enquiries continue.
