Aa black VW Golf was travelling along Millard Avenue in Doncaster when there was a collision with a silver Ford KA.

The 76-year-old woman in the KA sustained serious injuries as a result of the collision, however the driver of the Golf did not stop at the scene.

PC Anthony Tankard of the Road Policing Unit said: “It’s believed this car was being driven at speed in a residential area which has resulted in an innocent member of the public receiving serious injuries.

“There was no thought or consideration for the lady left injured and no attempt was made to check on her welfare.

“We are hoping that a member of the public will recognise the man from the photo and help us to identify him, as he may hold vital information that will assist with the investigation.”

Officers are appealing for anyone with information to contact police on 101 quoting incident number 239 of 16 December 2014.
