West Midlands Police are seeking a driver who fled the scene after colliding with a motorcyclist in Northfield earlier this month, leaving the 23 year old with life changing injuries.

The accident happened at the mini-roundabout at the junction of Hoggs Lane, Bidford Road and Allens Farm Road at around 1.20pm on Monday 11th April.

A green Volvo C70 hit the motorcyclist and left the scene, leaving the 23 year old lying seriously injured in the road. He suffered what have been described as life changing injuries and is still in hospital, undergoing treatment for a serious leg injury.

The Volvo was found burnt out in Gannow Green Lane, Rubery / Frankley a short time after the accident.

West Midlands Police have issued an appeal to the driver, or anyone with any information, to contact them.

PC John Williams, from the Serious Collision Team, said: “The motorcyclist was left for dead by the driver of the Volvo who did not stop at the scene.

“It was a passing pedestrian that came to his aid and called an ambulance. He is seriously injured and we need to find the person responsible and are making a plea to anyone who has any knowledge to come forward.

“We continue to make enquiries into the owner of the car and I would appeal for the driver to think long and hard about their actions and to do the right thing by coming forward.

“If you know of anyone who owned a dark green Volvo C70 and you have noticed that they have recently ‘sold’ it or have replaced it then please call me or one of the team so we can make further enquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to call West Midlands Police on 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or visit www.crimestoppers-uk.org
