Teenage boy critically ill in hospital after hit-and-run smash in East Yorkshire

Have your say

A teenager was fighting for his life today after a hit-and-run road collision in East Yorkshire.

The 16-year-old was riding a black bicycle on Brantingham Road in the village of Elloughton, near Hull, when he was struck by an unknown vehicle at about 11.15pm yesterday.

Its driver failed to stop at the scene and the boy – who is from Elloughton – was found lying in the road by a member of the public.

He was taken to Hull Royal Infirmary with what police today said were “life threatening” injuries.

The crash happened on a stretch of Brantingham Road about 200 metres east of Outgang Road.

A 63-year-old man has since been arrested in connection with the incident and a vehicle recovered.
