A WOMAN was left with injuries to her leg following a hit and run in Cheltenham.

Police are trying to trace a car that failed to stop following the collision on the junction of Fairview Street and Fairview Road.

She was crossing the road behind a stationary car when it reversed and hit her leg at around 8.40am on Tuesday, November 6.

The car, thought to be a taxi and described as a white Toyota Avensis, turned right and drove off down Fairview Road.

The woman suffered bruising to her leg, but did not require hospital treatment.

There was a queue of traffic at this time and police are appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident to get in touch.

Anyone with information should contact Gloucestershire police on 101 quoting incident 435 of November 8.

    White Toyota Avensis, possibly a taxi? Shouldn't be too hard to track down then. Such a description narrows it down to a handful of possible vehicles. At the very least the driver needs to be identified and educated on checking his/her mirrors before reversing. Whether it could be proved that the driver knew they'd hit the woman but still drove off may be difficult to prove though - unless the taxi had a customer on board who can provide an independent witness statement. Hope the injured lady makes a swift recovery.
