A pedestrian was left fighting for his life after being knocked down in a hit and run in Redbourn.

The man, believed to be in his 30s, was struck by a silver BMW at around 5.20pm on Thursday, December 13, as he was walking down the B487.

He was initially taken to Watford General Hospital by the East of England Ambulance service, before being transferred to the specialist St Marys Hospital in London to be treated for serious head injuries and a number of broken bones.

PC Anthony Winter from the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Roads Policing Unit said: “This was a nasty collision which has resulted in a man sustaining life–threatening injuries.”
