Police are now on the hunt for witnesses after a motorcyclist was hit by a car and ‘left for dead’ in Northfield.

The hit and run happened at about 1.20pm on April 1 on the mini roundabout on Hoggs Lane and the biker suffered life changing injuries. The 23-year-old is still being treated in hospital for a severe leg injury.

Officers believe a green Volvo C70 hit the man and then did not stop. Shortly after the collision a Volvo was found burnt out on Gannow Green Lane in Rubery.

PC John Williams, from the force’s serious collision team, said: “The motorcyclist was left for dead by the driver of the Volvo who did not stop at the scene.

“It was a passing pedestrian that came to his aid and called an ambulance. He is seriously injured and we need to find the person responsible and are making a plea to anyone who has any knowledge to come forward.

“We continue to make enquiries into the owner of the car and I would appeal for the driver to think long and hard about their actions and to do the right thing by coming forward.

“If you know of anyone who owned a dark green Volvo C70 and you have noticed that they have recently ’sold’ it or have replaced it then please call me or one of the team so we can make further enquiries.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact the police on the non emergency 101 number or to call Crimestoppers 0800 555111.
