Ambulance Police Day

Police are appealing for information after two teenage schoolgirls were struck and knocked down in a hit and incident as they walked to school Portadown.

A police spokesperson said: “On Wednesday 5th December 2018 at around 8am, two teenage girls on their way to school were struck and knocked down by a vehicle travelling on the Loughall Road, Portadown.

“One girl suffered injuries and was treated by our colleagues in the ambulance service.

“We are seeking to identify the driver involved, who allegedly did not stop at the time of the collision.

“The driver is described as female and driving a red or orange medium sized vehicle.

“This incident could very easily have ended in tragedy and although thankful the injuries were minor in this case, it must be said it is completely incomprehensible how someone could drive on without stopping in this situation.

“I would also like to take this oppurtunity coming up to Christmas to remind drivers to be especially aware of the road conditions and road worthiness of their vehicles.

“Police enquiries are ongoing but if you know who the driver was, saw anything or maybe you were the driver yourself, please get in contact. The Police reference is 185 12/05/18.”
