By Catherine Barkley in Crime

A female pedestrian was hit by a car in Copse Cross Street, Ross-on-Wye between 8.15am and 8.30am on Thursday, February 9th.

The victim suffered minor cuts and swelling to her hands. However she told the Ross Gazette that she was lucky not to have been more seriously injured.

Unfortunately, the woman didn’t get the registration number of the car but has described the vehicle as a small red hatchback and said it was a female driver.

If you saw this incident, or have any information about it, please contact Ross Police on 101. The incident number is 105-S-090217.


Update: Councillor Richard Mayo contaced the Ross Gazette after the police appeal for witnesses was published on this website. He said that, following a number of accidents which have occurred on this section of High Street he, and other county councillors, have been putting pressure on Herefordshire Council about the dangerous state of the road and pavement.

He said: “I am pleased to report that as part of the Rosswyn development Section 106 money has been made available for road improvements which will include narrowing the road, raising the pavements, erecting bollards and creating a crossing point.”

He added: “We are now continuing to push to get this done before the development is finished.”
