A 28 year-old-man was injured in a hit and run road crash in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Just after midnight, a 28 year old man was walking along the east footpath on Hillington Road with some friends after a night out. About 20 metres north of the junction with Birkhall Avenue the man began to cross the road, to get to the west footpath, when he was struck by a car, possibly a dark coloured ‘old style’ Vauxhall Corsa which failed to stop.
