A 28-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested following a hit and run smash near Merry Hill shopping centre at the weekend.
The incident saw a man in his 60s hit by a Toyota Yaris on the A4036 Merry Hill road at the junction of Coppice Lane just after 11pm on Saturday May 5.
A spokeswoman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said the man suffered head and chest injuries and a broken leg and he was taken to Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
A police spokesman said the man’s injuries were not considered life-threatening.
The driver of the Toyota failed to stop at the scene but the car was later recovered in Wollescote and a 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of failing to stop at the scene of a road traffic collision, driving without due care and attention, driving without a licence and driving without insurance.
The man was later released on police bail pending further enquiries.
Anyone with information about the incident is urged to call Dudley Police on 101.
