Police release footage of two shocking hit and run incidents in bid to trace drivers

West Midlands Police have released video of the moment a woman and toddler were sent flying in a hit-and-run in an effort to find the driver of a black Audi estate. A 42-year-old woman and her three-year-old nephew escaped with just minor injuries when they were hit while crossing King William Street in Coventry at around 7:30pm on Friday 7 December 2012.

While Greater Manchester Police have released CCTV footage of a hit and run that left a man with "catastrophic" injuries, as they appeal for the public’s help to trace a man. At around 2.30am on Tuesday 21 August 2012, a silver Vauxhall Corsa collided with three pedestrians in John Dalton Street, Manchester before driving off.

One of the pedestrians, father-of-three Michael Ward who was 28 at the time, received serious head injuries and was taken to hospital where he remains, suffered from injuries that he will never fully recover from. A 30-year-old man received a broken leg and a 32-year-old man received superficial injuries.

 Police have issued an image of a man they wish to trace in connection with the incident.
