Deaf teenager injured in hit-and-run

A TEENAGE girl was taken to hospital after being hit by a van as she waited to cross the road.

The 17-year-old, who is deaf, was with a friend at the junction of Netherfield Lane and Albert Road, Rawmarsh.

She was knocked to the ground by a white Transit-style van, which failed to stop at the scene last Tuesday.

Police said the girl suffered ankle and shoulder injuries and has been left badly shaken by the incident.

The van driver turned left onto Albert Road towards Hollybush Street, Parkgate, after the 7.30pm collision.

It is believed that another vehicle had to brake hard to avoid crashing into the same van on the route, which is used as a shortcut between Rawmarsh and Parkgate.

Any witnesses or anyone with information should call 101, quoting incident 106 of November 27 or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
