We’ve launched an investigation after a scooter rider was left lying in a road seriously injured in the early hours of this morning.
We were called just after 3am today (June 22) to reports of a fail to stop collision on Hayling Island.
The collision involved a Vespa scooter and a car, believed to be a black Renault Clio, which left the scene.
The rider, a man in his 30s from Hayling Island, was left with serious injuries and was taken to Southampton General Hospital.
PC Andrew Hector said: “We are appealing for your help to find the driver of the car, which we believe is a black Renault Clio, made in 2002.
“The car will have quite a bit of damage to the front, including a smashed headlight cluster, so it will be easy to spot if you know someone who drives a black Clio.
“It will need repairs so if you work at a car garage, please call us if you are approached by someone asking for a car matching this description to be fixed.
“We also asking residents in the area to check any CCTV they have as they may have captured the car driving through the area.”
