Press release   •   Sep 29, 2018 14:23 BST

We are investigating a road collision in Havant which left a pedestrian with serious injuries, including fractures to his spine.

The 46-year-old man was using a pedestrian crossing on the ASDA roundabout towards the B&Q on Purbrook Way at 10:25pm on Thursday 27 September, when he was involved in a collision with a blue pick-up truck travelling from Hulbert Road.

The pedestrian is being treated at the Queen Alexandra Hospital for fractures to his spine, lacerations to his right lung, and cuts to the back of his head.

We are keen to speak to the driver of the pick-up truck who stopped briefly at the scene. He is described as:

  • White
  • Aged in his 30s
  • Stocky build
  • He had mousey brown hair and possibly a goatee-style beard
  • He was wearing a black t-shirt

We are especially keen to obtain any dash-cam footage from vehicles that may have captured the incident.

Anyone who recognises the descriptions of the driver and pick-up truck or who saw what happened can contact PC Nicola Sarjeant from the Roads Policing Unit at Havant Police Station by calling 101 and quoting 44180365286.

Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, where information can be left anonymously.
