Police appeal after two children injured in Baldock crash
POLICE are appealing for witnesses to a crash this morning (Tuesday) which left two children injured.
The collision occurred at about 8.05am on South Road at the roundabout junction with the High Street in Baldock.
A vehicle stopped to allow a 16-year-old girl and an 11-year-old boy to cross, but a second vehicle in the other lane continued to drive and collided with the children as they were crossing.
The girl suffered injuries to her foot and arm and was taken to Lister Hospital in Stevenage and the boy suffered bruising injuries to his legs.
The vehicle is believed to be a two tone dark blue and silver pick-up truck, possibly a Mitsubishi or Nissan, with a partial index plate of EX51 or similar.
The driver stopped at the scene for a short while, but drove off before police arrived.
The driver is said to be a white man in his mid 40s, 5ft 10ins tall with a medium build and short mousey hair. He was wearing dark blue trousers which had large pockets down the sides and which appeared to be covered in paint debris.

“I’d also ask anyone who witnessed the collision to contact police at the earliest opportunity.”
