A woman had to be taken to hospital after being hit by a car which failed to stop in Lancaster.

Police are appealing for information about the driver of the vehicle and have asked witnesses to come forward.

The collision happened at around 7.30pm on Tuesday, February 25, on Eastham Street.

Officers said the woman was getting out of her car after parking up on the road and, as she opened her door to get out of the vehicle, a passing Ford KA hit the door of the vehicle, trapping her leg.

The woman was taken to the Royal Lancaster Infirmary to be assessed for a minor leg injury, Lancashire Police explained.
