Police have launched a witness appeal after a 16-year-old boy and 17-year-old girl were hit by a car in Marlow Bottom.
At 9.40pm on Tuesday, December 31, the pair were walking along Marlow Bottom Road when a vehicle mounted the pavement and collided with them.
The vehicle, a dark coloured car, was then driven away from the scene.
The girl required treatment at Wexham Park Hospital, but has since been discharged. The boy was attended to by paramedics at the scene but not taken to hospital.
The driver of the vehicle is described as a white man, with short dark hair and dark stubble. The car is believed to have a ‘07’ registration plate.
Investigating officer, PC Alastair Jarratt, of the Roads Policing department based at Milton Keynes police station, said: “I am appealing for witnesses to this fail to stop incident, during which two people were in collision with a car.
