Police appeal for witnesses to hit and run at New Inn, Bridgend

SOUTH Wales Police is investigating a road traffic collision involving a pedestrian, which occurred at New Inn Road, Merthyr Mawr, Bridgend on Tuesday 7th July 2020 at 8.45am.

A woman was jogging along New Inn Road in Merthyr Mawr travelling away from the general direction of the dipping bridge towards the general direction of Ewenny Garden Centre, when a 4×4 vehicle approached from behind travelling in the same direction.

The 4×4 has collided with the female jogger making contact with her back and the rear of her legs before forcing the victim up onto the 4×4 vehicle’s bonnet.
