A mum has been left fighting for her life after a car ploughed into the vehicle she was travelling in with her baby son, who was also injured in the hit-and-run.

The woman, 30, was a passenger in a blue Toyota Yaris, which collided with a blue Audi S3 just before midnight on Friday (March, 29). Police said her one-year-old son was taken to hospital with bruises while her partner, a 34-year-old man, was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Police statement

DS Paul Hughes said: “This happened on a busy road and I am keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision or who recalls seeing the blue Audi just before the collision, on Cattel Road. “I know from CCTV that there were pedestrians and other cars at the scene who have not yet spoken to us. “I would urge them to come forward and help us establish the full facts in order to give those involved the answers they need. “I would also appeal directly to the driver of the Audi to do the right thing and come forward. "You may not have been aware of just how serious this collision was last night, but you know now.”
