Main article content
We are continuing to appeal for information following reports of a hit-and-run collision in St Helens on Friday night, 8 July.
At around 9.30pm we were called to reports a female had been found lying in North Road.
Officers spoke to witnesses at the scene and it is believed that prior to the incident a fight had broken out involving a group of people.
During the disturbance a Ford Fiesta is reported to have been in collision with a number of people. The vehicle is then believed to have left the scene and was found abandoned a short distance away.
A woman in her 30s and a man in his 40s were both taken to hospital with head injuries and a woman in her 40s was taken to hospital with back and facial injuries. None of the injuries are believed to be life threatening.
A 20 year-old woman, a 38 year-old woman and a 46 year-old were all arrested on suspicion of affray.
One has been released on conditional bail, one released under investigation and a third remains in hospital for treatment.
Enquiries are ongoing to identify those involved.
Detective Inspector Lisa Milligan said: “We keen to speak to anyone who was in the North Road area around 9.30pm on Friday and saw or heard anything. This would have been a shocking thing to witness so if you were passing or live nearby and have dashcam or CCTV footage come forward as it may be key to the investigation.”
Anyone with information is asked to DM @MerPolCC or @CrimestoppersUK anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting reference 22000485861.
