A 19-year-old from Wokingham is in a critical condition with life-threatening injuries after being struck by a car in Bracknell.

Police are appealing for witnesses following the incident, which occurred at around 11.10pm on May 10.

Officers were called to reports of a man lying in the road on The Ring, Bracknell, with a serious head injury.

On arrival at the scene, the victim stated that he had been hit by a car, but could not provide any further information.

The victim was taken to St George’s Hospital in London, where he is in a critical condition with life-threatening head injuries at this time.

Investigating officer Sergeant Claire Greene of the Joint Operations Unit for Roads Policing, based at Bicester, said: “The injured man was able to tell us that he was struck by a car, but at this time, we have no witnesses.

“There was some vehicle debris at the scene, although we cannot determine if this is connected or not at this time.

“I am urging anybody who was on The Ring at around 11.10pm last night and witnessed anything, to contact police.

“Similarly, if anybody has dash-cam footage of around this time, please can you check it and contact us if you have any information.

“It is likely that the vehicle involved would have been damaged in this collision, and so if anybody has any information relating to a car being damaged in the area, again, I would urge you to contact us.

“Sadly, the victim of this collision is now in a critical condition and his next of kin are aware and being supported by officers.”

Anybody with any information should call the 24-hour non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 43190140695.
