Police Investigate Elderly Man Found Seriously Injured In Coventry

Police are continuing to investigate after an elderly man was found with serious injuries in Coventry.

It is understood that a 75-year-old man was found lying in Binley Road at the junction with Far Gosford Street in Stoke around 10.45pm Friday 25 September.

He was taken to hospital where he remains in a serious condition, with substantial injuries to his pelvis, legs and back.

Police believe that the man may have been hit by a vehicle, which then failed to stop.

PC Ian Hands from the force’s traffic department said: "We believe the man has injuries that are consistent with being hit by a vehicle but we need any witnesses who may have seen what happened to come forward. The man was discovered last night on what is a busy road in Coventry."

Anyone who may have witnessed an incident is asked to call police on 101.
