Police liaising with Romanian Consulate to identify 'hit and run' victim

First published in News

THE police are liaising with the Romanian Consulate in an attempt to identify the critically-injured victim of an alleged hit-and-run in Christ-church last week.

A man was found with ‘serious head injuries’ at around 12pm on Dudmoor Farm Road on Monday, March 31.

A police spokesperson said the casualty was still in a critical condition at Southampton General Hospital and that his identity was yet to be confirmed.

She added: “We believe him to be a Romanian national and are speaking to the Romanian Consulate to try to confirm his identity.”

A joint investigation is being conducted by Poole traffic officers and detectives from Bournemouth CID to establish how the man obtained his injuries.

Anyone who saw anything in the area of Dudmoor Farm Road or Marsh Lane in Christchurch is asked to contact Dorset Police.

Witnesses and anyone with information should call 101, quoting incident number 31:145 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Why hasn't this story got as much attention as the other hit and runs that have happened recently? If it was a child or elderly person then it would be all over the place! Poor bloke

Conveniently ignoring the fact that both the question and the answer lies within his 'camp' and they will not be talking to anyone about it, especially the Police.
