POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a car hit a man and failed to stop in the town centre.

At around 11.50pm on Saturday, August 17, it's believed a 24-year-old man was walking along Pitt Street. It's reported that a red car - believed to be a Fiat Punto - travelled along Peel Street onto Pitt Street.

Next to the Post Office on Pitt Street, it's believed that the red car came into collision with the 24-year-old pedestrian. The car allegedly failed to stop and left the scene.

The car may have had a 2008 registration plate.

The 24-year-old man was taken to Barnsley District General Hospital with pain and discomfort to his lower back, but was later released.

Anyone with any information relating to this incident should contact South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 4 of August 18, 2013.

Alternatively, people can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

I was walking down the road just after it happened. There were lots of people nearby so hopefully somebody saw the number plate.
