A CCTV image shows the moment Dale O'Malley was struck by a hit-and-run driver

Police have released shocking CCTV images of a man who was left fighting for his life when he was struck by a hit-and-run driver.

The images were taken from a bus parked next to the site of the collision and show victim Dale O'Malley, 28, being struck by the car, flying through the air and lying in the road.

His family took the decision to release the images in the hope they would prompt the driver to come forward, police said.

Mr O'Malley was crossing the road near to the McDonald's restaurant on Wellington Road South in Stockport, Greater Manchester, at about 11.05pm on Sunday May 1. A silver/grey five-door Peugeot 206 struck him and drove off in the direction of Hazel Grove.

He suffered a broken leg, broken arm and head injuries and was taken to Stepping Hill hospital for emergency treatment. He was later transferred to Hope hospital where his condition remains critical.

The vehicle suffered damage to the front nearside and a smashed windscreen.

Inspector Susan Redfern, of Greater Manchester Police, said: "The images of the collision are quite upsetting to look at, but I make no apologies for making them public.

"The family asked us to publicise them in an effort to provoke a reaction. They want the driver, or anyone who thinks they might know the driver, to come forward and speak to police."

Police also want to hear from anyone who may have seen a damaged 206 driving round Stockport or from any mechanics who have been asked to repair such a car.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Road Policing Unit on 0161 856 6025 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
