Officers are appealing for witnesses after a woman was injured in a collision on Narborough Road in Leicester.
It happened at around 7.30pm today (Tuesday 15 December) near the junction with Upperton Road and involved a car and a pedestrian.
Colleagues from the East Midlands Ambulance Service attended the scene and a woman in her 40s was taken to Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre for treatment – her condition is described as potentially life-changing.

Detective Sergeant Paul Hawkins said: “A woman has been seriously injured in a collision where the driver has failed to stop at the scene.
“We want to find this vehicle and would like to hear from anyone who may have information about where it is or who it belongs to.
“There will be damage to the front of the car and possibly to the windscreen as well.
“Equally we would like to speak to anyone who was in the area and recalls seeing the vehicle being driven beforehand or the collision itself.
“If you have a dashcam installed in your vehicle and captured what happened please get in touch.”
