Hockley schoolgirl victim of hit and run in Church Street, Little Baddow

Southend Standard: Schoolgirl victim of hit and run Schoolgirl victim of hit and run

A SCHOOLGIRL from Hockley was involved in a hit and run.

The 14-year-old was hit and injured by a van which failed to stop on Saturday, May 11, during a school trip to Little Baddow.

She was among a group of pupils taking part in a school activity weekend.

They were walking along Church Street, near the junction of Colan Street, at about 10.30am when a white dropside van passed the group and its wing mirror struck the girl on the back of the head, knocking her to the ground.

She was taken to Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford and was treated for a cut to her head. She was allowed home later that day.

The van, which was carrying tools and logs on the back, was last seen turning into Holybread Lane.

Police want to hear from any witnesses - especially the driver of a small black car travelling behind the van โ€“ or anyone with information about the vehicle.

Call Pc Andy Sumner from Chelmsford Road Policing office on 101 or email 2795@essex.pnn.police.uk.

Sounds as though the van was driving in the gutter, for the side mirror to clout her in the back of the head, or was she walking on the kerb ? and where was the supervision from the teachers ??

My son was was in another group adjacent to this young girl and his group helped her.

They were all doing their Duke of Edinburgh awards and walking on the side of a country road with no paths. Someone was injured, fortunately not seriously, it is wrong to judge without knowing the facts.

This person must have known he'd hit someone and needs to come forward.

Well done to the 2 groups from both schools who stayed calm and did what they could do to make the girl comfortable until the emergency services arrived.

I wish the young lady a speedy recovery from her experience.

Would I be right in thinking these children were walking with their backs to to traffic ? if that's the case, the so called supervisors need to be held to account, BASICS, you always walk towards the oncoming traffic, so you can see them and they can see you, if she was struck from behind, seems as though they were not...

Absolutely spot on. Facts are meaningless to certain individuals who post on here.

Lies, rumour, conjecture and surmise are the order of the day here and particularly if they happen to have been dredged up from the bowels of Google's weird loony left lies vault. This is a maelstrom into which all the worst lies and hypocrisy are unceremoniously hurled - and which are regurgitated at the other end as fact.

Something some of the morons here wouldn't know from a hole in the ground.

Like yourself I wish her a fast recovery and hope that every effort is being made to find the miscreant. Too many of these loons loose on our roads.

When driving, if I see individual children or groups too close to the edge of the pavement, I give them as wide a berth as possible.

It's not rocket science.
