Reports are filtering through from Observatory that a young man has attempted a “hit and run” on Lower Main Road around 10pm tonight. Apparently the incident occurred outside the Stones Obs building where the driver hit a pedestrian with their car and attempted to drive off. Numerous young men then chased the car and pulled the driver out the vehicle. Police and ambulances are reportedly on the scene at the present. More details to be confirmed as soon as possible.
BCTC wishes the victim of this revolting crime all the best in their recovery.
