Colburn car checks a week after hit-and-run

A week after a hit-and-run seriously injured a 39-year-old woman North Yorkshire Police have checked all vehicles passing the collision site.

Rosina Seabright was crossing Forest Drive, in Colburn, North Yorkshire, at about 22:15 GMT on Saturday 26 January when she was hit by an unknown vehicle.

Police said she remained in a serious condition in hospital in Middlesbrough.

For two hours on Saturday evening officers stopped all vehicles at the site to appeal for further information.

PC Tony Leonard said: "The victim remains in a serious condition in hospital and it is vital that we find out who was responsible."

'Report any damage'

Ms Seabright was taken to James Cook Hospital in Middlesbrough where she is in a serious but stable condition.

Police are appealing for the driver of a small dark-coloured car which was in the area at the time of the incident to contact them urgently.

Officers are also trying to find the driver of a light-coloured car seen to swerve to avoid the woman lying in the road.

Garages have also been asked to report any damage to a dark coloured car that may have been in a crash with a pedestrian.
