Witnesses sought to collision between elderly woman and SUV in Bolton

Police were called to reports of an elderly woman lying on the road across Moss Bank Way in Bolton, at 10.10am on Saturday.

The 89-year-old woman had sustained serious injuries.

She was taken to hospital, where she remains in stable condition, having been treated for wrist and knee fractures.

An investigation suggests the woman was injured while she crossed Moss Bank Way at the junction with Hill View Road, and a vehicle collided with her as it turned left out of Hill View Road onto Moss Bank Way.

During the collision, the woman was knocked to the floor and the driver of a silver or grey coloured SUV failed to stop and proceeded to turn left, driving westbound on Moss Bank Way, in the direction of Moss Bank Park.

Chief inspector Michael Parker said: “We are investigating a road traffic collision, where a large vehicle struck an elderly woman, while she was crossing the road near the shops in Astley Bridge.

“The scene has now been stood down while officers review CCTV footage and continue to speak with people who were in the area at the time of this incident, aiming to identify the driver of the vehicle who failed to stop.

“We urge the driver to come forward and if you have any information, dashcam or mobile phone footage that could support our investigation, please call 101 quoting log 1049 of 15/06/2024. Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
