Police in England are hunting a mobility scooter rider after a hit-and-run collision which left a woman injured.

A pedestrian in her 60s suffered leg injuries after the scooter driver apparently lost control and rode on to the pavement near Southend bus station, Essex Police said.

The woman was taken to hospital and later had plastic surgery on her injuries. She is still receiving medical treatment.

The scooter rider is believed to be in his 70s, wearing glasses, a brown cloth cap and a brown jacket.

A police spokesman said: “He left the scene without leaving contact details.”

The incident happened at about 4pm on April 7.

Witnesses should contact the force’s casualty reduction investigation team on 01245 452280.
