Updated: Apr 26

Cheshire Police officials are urgently calling on witnesses to come forward following a hit-and-run incident in Crewe, that left a three-year-old boy with a serious foot injury.

The collision occurred at approximately 3:30pm Monday 18 March, on Bedford Street near its junction with Barker Street. Initial reports describe the vehicle involved as a black car, possibly a taxi, which collided with the young pedestrian.

Following the incident, the child was promptly transported to hospital for treatment of his injuries. He has now been released.

Authorities report that the driver of the car paused at the scene momentarily before departing without leaving contact details.

Descriptions provided by onlookers suggest the driver may be either Asian or black.

Despite ongoing investigations since the day of the accident, efforts to locate both the vehicle and its driver have yet to yield results.

The police are appealing to anyone in the vicinity at the time, or with any information that might aid their enquiries, to get in touch.

PC Ian Cosgrove said: “We are urging anyone who witnessed what happened or has any dashcam or CCTV footage which may aid our investigation to get in touch with us.

“We appreciate this incident happened more than a month ago and enquiries have been ongoing since, however we would ask anyone who was in the area at the time to think back about anything they may have seen.”
