Baby girl seriously injured after car hits pram near Asda before driver flees scene
A baby only weeks old was seriously injured when a car hit its pram before the driver fled the scene, police said.
North Wales Police said a driver “clipped” the pram while it was being pushed by the baby’s mum across a road near an ASDA store in Wrexham yesterday.
Police initially said that the mother and baby were being taken to hospital for checks, and have now revealed that the infant was badly hurt as a result of the incident.
It is understood the baby girl is just a few weeks old, and has suffered a serious head injury after her pram was tipped over in the collision.
A North Wales Police spokesman said: “Further to our last update this is a further appeal for the driver of a white small hatchback involved in a fail to stop RTC earlier today in Wrexham town centre.
“We are urging the driver to come forward, we are urging for any witnesses or dashcam to come forward and speak to us in confidence.
“The latest update is that the baby has suffered a serious injury and we would like to speak to the driver at the earliest opportunity.
“If you were in the area of Bodhyfryd, ASDA, Wrexham on 7th October at approximately 10.40am and witnessed anything please call 101 and ask to speak with the Roads Policing Unit quoting Y147907.”
