A DOG walker and his pet were injured in a hit-and-run in Coseley.

A 35-year-old man and his three Dachshund dogs were hit by a car as they crossed the road at the junction of Wallbrook Street and Old Meetings Road.

They were struck by a small, five-door silver Toyota car just before 10pm on October 24.

The dog suffered a shattered hip which required surgery and the man seriously injured his ear and broke his hand and wrist.

The other two dogs were unhurt.

Police are now appealing for anyone who may have seen the vehicle or has information to come forward.

PC David Walker, from Force Traffic, said: "This was a nasty collision which left a man and a pet dog injured and we want to find whoever was responsible.

"We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who was travelling in the area at the time and may have seen or heard anything.

"We are also seeking to trace anybody who may have seen the vehicle since. It would have suffered some front end damage which would be noticeable; it may have been taken somewhere for repairs."

He added: "I would urge anyone who remembers seeing a damaged vehicle like this to get in touch as soon as possible."
