Boy hurt in hit and run on Carlisle pavement

A young boy was knocked off his bike by a car as he was riding along a pavement in Carlisle.

The injured 13-year-old was taken to the city's Cumberland Infirmary.

It is also believed that the car driver - who failed to stop - collided with a man.

Police say the local boy was deliberately hit by the reversing car at about 9.10pm yesterday on Orton Road, near to the Shadygrove Road junction.

The vehicle was said to be small and dark, possibly a Volkswagen.

Inspector Kim Brennand said: “We believe that this may have been a deliberate collision and appeal for anyone with information to get in touch.

"The injuries that the victim suffered could have been much worse and we would like the public's help in identifying who is responsible."

Officers have appealed for the unknown man struck by the car to contact them.

“The vehicle will most likely have collision damage. Please get in touch if you have any information, no matter how insignificant you may deem it,” added Insp Brennand.

Anyone with information should call 101.
