A TEENAGE girl suffered head injuries after she was the victim of an alleged hit-and -run incident.

The girl was hurt after being hit by a car on one of Doncaster’s busiest roads.

But the driver of the black Vauxhall Corsa failed to stop and South Yorkshire Police officers are now appealing for information.

The 13-year-old girl had just stepped off a bus on Thorne Road, near the Clay Lane Estate, and was walking towards Sainsbury’s supermarket when the Corsa, travelling towards Doncaster, approached.

Police say it went out of control on the roundabout at the entrance to the supermarket.

The side of the Corsa, possibly the wing mirror, is believed to have then clipped the girl, causing her to fall to the ground and hit her head.

The girl sustained concussion as well as bruising and grazes.

She was taken to Doncaster Royal Infirmary following the incident which happened on Monday, October 15, at about 7.50am, near the supermarket’s petrol station.

The Corsa has rear, black -tinted windows and bright headlights, which possibly have a blue tint.

The driver of the car and the passenger are both believed to be white, in their early 20s and were wearing hooded tops.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call police on 101, quoting incident number 159 of October 15.
