POLICE in Co Derry are seeking the public’s help in tracing a female motorist after a van driver was struck last week and knocked unconscious.
The accident happened on Friday, July 12 in Magherafelt.
An officer writing on PSNI Magherafelt’s Facebook page said today: “Bit of an unusual one here, 12th July during the day, guy knocked unconscious at the side of his van (pictured above) after he got out and was checking a tyre.
“Investigation to date points to him being struck by a passing vehicle and as a result he has suffered spinal, tendon and ligament injuries.
“It happened on the Draperstown Road close to the bus stop and Duntibryan Road junction.
“We’re especially looking to speak to a dark haired female who was driving a red BMW x5 or Volvo Jeep.
“The investigation is still ongoing to narrow it down to the exact vehicle and driver.
“Ring any bells?
“If it was you and you’re now in a panic about what to do, best thing is just drop us a PM and we’ll make arrangements to get your account of what happened.
“Better for all involved if we are contacted voluntarily rather than us having to arrive at your front door some morning.”
