Police are hunting a driver caught on CCTV ploughing into a man in his 60s in a hit-and-run incident.
The pedestrian was walking across Church Lane in Handsworth, Birmingham, at 4.40pm on 28 July when he was mown down by a black VW Polo driving at speed.
The footage shows the man attempting to get out of the path of the black VW Polo moments before he was struck head-on.
The car then sped off, leaving the man on the on the pavement. Passersby called 999 and the victim was rushed to hospital with non-life-threatening head injuries.
A West Midlands Police spokesperson said: “The pedestrian was struck by a black VW Polo which then sped off.
“Efforts to trace the car and the driver are ongoing. CCTV footage of the collision has now been released as part of an appeal for information.
"If you can help, please get in touch.”
Last month, a hit-and-run driver who killed a cyclist before returning to the scene of the crash he caused was jailed for less than two years.
Dominik Dabrowski, 31, ploughed into Kibreab Tewelderbrhan, 29, shortly before 3am on 30 October last year.
He sped off in his Volkswagen van but returned minutes later.
He was caught when CCTV showed him driving his van in a loop to return to the crash scene in Lewisham Road, Smethwick, in the West Midlands.
Dabrowski was traced and arrested by police days later before being charged over the fatal collision.
A court heard that Tewelderbrhan, from Handsworth, Birmingham, was treated at the scene but died in hospital the following day.
