Man flees after car hits him in Leeds

Have your say

POLICE in Leeds are trying to trace a man who staggered into fields and disappeared after being hit by a car.

Officers fear the man may have suffered a head injury during the incident in East Ardsley on Sunday night.

The incident happened on the A650 near to Healy Croft Lane at around 11pm .

It is believed the man was in collision with a vehicle but when people stopped to help him he became agitated, got up and staggered off into fields.

Acting Sergeant Chris Dibbs said: “We are asking for this man to come forward, or anyone who knows him, as we are very concerned for his welfare.

“We have carried out extensive searches of the area but no trace of the man has been found. When members of the public tried to help him at the scene of the collision, he became aggressive - this is a classic symptom of head trauma and it’s believed he had a head injury which is why we are so concerned for his welfare.”

The man is described as white, in his mid 30s of a medium build with short dark cropped hair. He was wearing dark jeans and a long sleeved top.

Anyone with any information about this man is asked to contact Morley Neighbourhood Policing Team on 101 quoting reference 1861 of July 28 or to call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
