A mobility scooter rider has been left with life-threatening injuries after a hit-and-run collision with a van in Norfolk.
The woman in her late 70s sustained a suspected fractured skull and internal injuries in the crash at 15:00 BST on Monday, on Brandiston Road in Cawston.
The van driver failed to stop at the scene, Norfolk Police said.
The van was later traced and a man is helping officers with their inquiries.
