A 12-year-old girl is fighting for her life in hospital after a hit-and-run in Newbury.
It happened on the northbound carriageway of the A339 in Berkshire – on the railway overbridge close to Station Road – at around 9pm on 27 December.
The child, who was walking on the pavement with her family, was struck by what police believe was a flatbed van or recovery vehicle which failed to stop at the scene.
The girl was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital where she remains in a critical condition.
Investigating officer, PC Mark Dunne of the Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “I am making a direct appeal to the driver of the vehicle to come forward.
“If anyone witnessed the collision or has dash-cam footage then we would also like to hear from you.
“The vehicle involved may have noticeable damage around the front nearside, so if anyone has seen a similar vehicle with damage then please contact the police as soon as you can.
“You can leave your information on our website or by calling 101, quoting reference 1178 (27/12).”
