CCTV released of 'hit-and-run car'

Police today issued a picture of a car believed to have struck a 93-year-old woman who was left lying seriously injured in the road.

Isobel Rawes is still in hospital after the hit-and-run in Shirley, West Midlands on March 24.

Police said she was hit as she crossed Stratford Road at around 11.50am.

A spokeswoman said: " The driver failed to stop at the scene and left the victim lying in the carriageway before driving away in the direction of the M42.

"Following extensive CCTV inquiries, police have identified the car as a silver-coloured Chrysler Voyager. It is believed that the vehicle will have damage to the front passenger side."

Sergeant Adam Green, from the Regional Collision Investigation Unit, said: "It is not known at this stage why the driver of the vehicle drove away leaving Mrs Rawes lying in the road.

"We are continuing to trawl CCTV in an attempt to identify the vehicle and I would urge anyone that has seen a Chrysler Voyager with damage to the front passenger side to come forward. It may be that the driver has confided in a friend or family member or a neighbour has noticed recent damage.

"It is important that we speak to the driver in order to understand the reasons for the collision and the subsequent driving away from the scene to provide answers to the family of Mrs Rawes.

"Anyone who has any information regarding this collision can contact the collision investigation unit on 101."
