A man in his 20s was taken to hospital with serious injuries to his head and legs after a hit and run in Oldham last night.

The incident happened on Rochdale Road around 8.00pm.

Police Sergeant Joseph Barron, of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “The failure to stop by this motorist – after causing serious injury to a young man – is absolutely shocking behaviour and shows a complete lack of concern for the welfare of others..

“We are working to establish the circumstances that led to this collision, and I would like to make a direct plea to anyone who may have seen anything that can assist our enquiries.

“I’d ask any witnesses or anyone with any information, dash-cam or CCTV footage of the collision to please get in touch as soon as possible.”

The man remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.
