A WOMAN remains in a serious condition in hospital a week after she was hit by a car in Halesowen.

The pedestrian, aged 52, was struck by a blue Audi on Long Lane at around 8.30pm on Friday, November 23.

She was rushed to hospital with a head injury where she remains in a serious but stable condition.

The driver of the Audi fled the scene.

A 27-year-old was later arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of a collision, and was later released pending investigation.

Police are still searching for the Audi, and are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

PC Mathew Leeming, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit at West Midlands Police, said: "Enquiries are on-going to trace the blue Audi A3 which was displaying the number plate VF04FYK at the time.

“We know that the vehicle will have sustained damage to the windscreen which may now have been repaired.

”I would appeal to local garages or windscreen repairers to contact me if they have seen a vehicle like this with similar damage.

“I also want to appeal to local residents to keep an eye out and to get in touch if they see an abandoned vehicle that matches this description."
