POLICE are hunting for a driver who hit a pensioner then drove away from the scene.

The woman in her sixties was hit by a car when she was crossing Harbord Road in Cutteslowe at the junction of Banbury Road at about 7.25pm last Wednesday - January 8.

The driver did not stop at the scene to check if she was okay or hand over any details.

The woman does not remember what the car looked like but thinks a man was driving.

She was helped by members of the public and was then taken to hospital with a fracture, but has since been discharged.

Now Thames Valley Police are appealing for anybody who might have seen it or captured it on dash-cam cameras to come forward.

This morning the force also appealed for help in tracking down another driver following a collision in Blackbird Leys.
