Alert message sent 04/07/2020 12:27:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We are appealing for a Swindon mother to come forward after her child was involved in a collision with a car. 

Yesterday (03/07), at around 2.50pm a grey Ford Mondeo was in collision with a child pedestrian on Freshbrook Way, Swindon. 

The driver of the car stopped but the child, who is believed to be around 8-years-old, got up and left the scene with their mother. 

PC Ben Cox said:  "It is thought the child ran out into the road into the path of the vehicle before being struck. 
"The driver stopped at the scene and fully cooperated with officers.
"However, our enquiries have been unable to identify the child involved and we would like the child and their mother to make themselves known to us so we can obtain their details and check on whether the child has any injuries. 
"With the information we have so far, I believe that there was no serious injury to the child." 

If you are the mother or family member of the child involved, please call us on 101 quoting reference number 54200064371.
