AN ELDERLY man was hospitalised after he was hit by a car.

The pedestrian, 82, sustained a broken elbow and dislocated shoulder, for which he was treated at Worthing Hospital.

A woman driving the car stopped and said she would call an ambulance, but then drove on without leaving details or apparently making the call.

The incident happened on Saturday, May 5, at 7.40am at the junction of Station Road and Newlands Road, Worthing.

Officers investigating the collision are keen to speak to the driver or anyone who saw what happened or who may have recorded it on dashcams.

They are asked to contact Sussex Police online or by phoning 101, quoting serial 312 of 05/05.
