Police have arrested a suspect after a pedestrian was run over by a car.

Officers were called to Radford Boulevard, Radford, following reports an injured man was lying in the street.

The man was crossing the road when he was struck by a car that was reportedly being driven in a dangerous manner.

He suffered a broken leg and facial injuries during the collision, which happened at around 1.25 pm on Sunday (15 January).

A 59-year-old man was arrested at the scene soon afterwards on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

He has since been released on bail.

PC Nicole Bass, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “A road collision involving a pedestrian can have devastating consequences for everyone involved, so any report we receive of this nature is obviously very concerning.

“Fortunately, the victim didn’t suffer life-threatening injuries in this case, although he did sustain serious injuries that required hospital treatment.

“Keeping people in our communities safe is our number one priority as a force, and this pledge very much extends to safety on our roads.

“There is no excuse for anyone to drive in a dangerous fashion on our streets, and anyone who does this should expect to face consequences.

“We have now arrested a suspect in connection with this incident, but our inquiries are still ongoing.

“Anyone who saw what happened or has any dash-cam footage that could assist our investigation should contact the police immediately on 101, quoting incident 300 of 15 January 2023.

“Information can also be left anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
