Hit-and-run incident in Stirling: Hunt for Volkswagen Golf driver after pedestrian struck by car

Police are searching for a driver following a hit-and-run incident at the weekend.

A 63-year-old woman was struck by a grey Volkswagen Golf as she crossed the road in Stirling's King Street at around 2.20pm on Saturday.

Police Scotland said emergency services went to the scene and the pedestrian was taken to Forth Valley Royal Hospital with a serious leg injury.

Investigating officers are now appealing for witnesses to come forward as they try to find the driver.

They believe the VW Golf had been parked nearby.

Sergeant Lee Walkingshaw said: "The Golf failed to stop and we believe it drove off in the direction of Corn Exchange Road.

"Our enquiries are ongoing and we are keen to trace the driver.

"In particular, I am asking for road users in the area at the time of the incident to check their dashcams to see if they have footage that could help with our investigation to get in touch.

"In addition, if you saw what happened or where the car went afterwards and have not already spoken to officers then please contact us."

Anyone who has information about the incident is asked to call Police Scotland on 101.
