Swansea taxi driver sought after man hurt in collision

Police investigating an incident in which a pedestrian was seriously injured by a car have appealed for a Swansea taxi driver to come forward.

The 21-year-old man was hit by a black Skoda Octavia at about 23:15 GMT on Fabian Way on Saturday.

It is thought the man may have spoken to a taxi driver in a white Skoda-style car shortly before the incident.

Officers have urged the taxi driver to call police on 101, 01656 655555, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

The pedestrian was struck on Fabian Way near its junction with Port Tennant Road.

He was taken to the University of Wales Hospital, Cardiff, where his condition is described as serious.

Before the collision, officers believe the pedestrian - who was leaning against a roadside cabinet - may have spoken to a taxi driver in a white vehicle who had stopped at traffic lights.

Sgt Rowan Moore said: "We need this driver to come forward as soon as possible as we are trying to establish the movements of the pedestrian prior to him being knocked down."
