We are appealing for information after a man was knocked off his mobility scooter in Huntington, York.
It happened on the junction of North Moor Road and New Lane at around 6:40am on Friday 21 October 2022 when a man his 80s was riding his mobility scooter across the pedestrian crossing towards Huntington Working Men's Club and was struck by a dark coloured vehicle causing him to fall out of his scooter onto the road.
The male driver of the vehicle assisted the elderly male to his feet and over to the pavement. Another member of the public also came to the man’s assistance. The driver then left the scene without providing any contact details, driving off on North Moor Road.
