A man remains in hospital in a stable condition after two people were injured in a non-stop road traffic collision in Humberstone Road, Leicester.
Officers were called at around 1am today (30 May) by East Midlands Ambulance Service to a report of a man in his forties and a teenage boy being struck by a vehicle close to the junction with Spinney Hill Road.
Both have been taken to hospital, the boy sustained a minor injury while the man is in a stable condition.
The vehicle failed to stop at the scene and enquiries are ongoing to locate it. Early enquiries led officers to believe that the vehicle did not deliberately drive at the pedestrians.
