A MAN who was thrown 50 feet after being hit by a car which was being pursued by police is still in a critical condition in hospital.

The 37-year-old Bolton man suffered a life-threatening head injury after the hit-and-run incident in Wigan Road, Deane, on Friday lunchtime.

A light blue Vauxhall Astra, was driven away from the scene after it hit the man while attempting to overtake a bus on the pelican crossing near the junction with Bankfield Street.

It is thought that the car was going through a red light when it hit the man, who was thrown into the air and about 50 feet along the road before landing outside the A’la Pizza takeaway.

Anyone with information can call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
