Arrest after 'hit and run' on Stoke-on-Trent pensioner

A 28-year-old man from Longton has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving after a suspected hit and run in Stoke-on-Trent earlier.

A male pedestrian was hit by a white Toyota on the A34 Stone Road between the Hanford roundabout to the London Road at about 07:20 BST.

The driver did not stop and the A34 was closed for almost four hours by police.

The pedestrian, a 70-year-old man from Stoke, is said to be in a serious but stable condition in hospital.

The car was found in Brendale Close, Hanford, and will be forensically examined.

Officers from Staffordshire Police believe another person was in the car at the time of the accident and have asked for them to come forward.
