“We know that the car momentarily stopped before driving away from the scene so it is clear that the driver would have realised there had been a collision.”
That's the message from cops investigating the hit and run which left a 12 year-old in hospital.
They have made a direct appeal to the person behind the wheel of the car in question - believed to be a white Nissan SUV - to hand themselves in.
Police and paramedics were called shortly after 4pm on Friday September 13 to the scene, in Grand Parade, Forty Avenue, Wembley.
There they found the boy - he had suffered serious injuries after being struck by the car, but has now been discharged from hospital.
