Teenager injured in hit and run in Ashington

A TEENAGER had to be cut free from a car on Wednesday night after a hit and run incident in Ashington.

At 6.35pm a gold Vauxhall Corsa was being driven along Katherine Street when a car, believed to be a silver Nissan Micra, collided with it.

The Micra did not stop and drove straight off.

The emergency services were called and the 19-year-old female driver of the Corsa had to be cut from the vehicle by the fire service.

She was taken to hospital for treatment to a suspected broken wrist and whiplash injures.

Police are now appealing to anyone who was in Katherine Street and who witnessed the crash, or anyone who knows of any silver Nissan Micra style cars with damage to the front in the Ashington area, to contact the force’s roads policing unit on 101 ext 69191.
