Teenage girl injured in hit-and-run in Norfolk

A teenager is in hospital with a fractured pelvis after being hit by a car that failed to stop on a country road in Norfolk.

A second girl, also knocked over, had less serious injuries, police said.

The incident happened at 0030 BST on Saturday on the B1145 at Bawsey, near King's Lynn, as the two teenagers were walking along the side of the road.

A forensic examination has been carried out but neither the driver or the vehicle have been found.

Police are appealing to the driver or any passengers in the vehicle to come forward and to give their account of what happened.

"Officers would also like to speak to anyone who was in the Bawsey area around the time of the collision who saw the pedestrians on the road, the collision, or any vehicles which they suspect may have been involved," a spokesman said.

"Vehicle dealers and repair agents are also asked to be vigilant and notify us if they are requested to repair a vehicle or provide parts following recent damage which may be attributed to this collision."
