The driver is described as a female who was travelling in a red or orange medium sized vehicle.

A spokesperson for PSNI Craigavon said in a post on Facebook: "This incident could very easily have ended in tragedy, although thankfully the injuries were minor in this case.

"It is completely incomprehensible how someone could drive on without stopping in this situation."

Enquiries are ongoing, and police have appealed to anyone who saw anything, who may be the woman responsible or who knows who she is, to contact officers using the reference 185.
