A father has spoken exclusively to the Bucks Free Press, after a horror hit-and-run left both him and his son with broken bones.

The father, who wishes to remain anonymous for both him and his son’s protection, confirmed that the shocking crash has left him “struggling to both eat and sleep” because of the flashbacks that he is suffering.

He said: “I was with my son, stood right outside the chip shop by the traffic island. The car came driving on the wrong side of the road and hit us. I remember seeing the driver slow his car slightly and seem to take a look back. He clearly thought better of stopping and sped off.”

Although none were able to identify the driver at the scene, the father confirmed that there were a large number of witnesses who helped the two before an ambulance arrived and gave them the required medical attention.

Both were taken to hospital, where they have since been discharged.

Speaking of his injuries, the man confirmed that both him and his son had suffered broken bones.

“My son has suffered a broken jaw and he has a really nasty gash on his chin. I’ve got a broken arm, a broken wrist and two broken fingers. I have to go and have a consultation on Thursday to work out if I am going to need an operation to repair the damage.

“I have really been struggling to both eat and sleep since it happened. I’m still in a state of shock. Luckily, my son has taken everything and is coping really well.”

Thames Valley Police confirmed that at the moment no arrests have been made in connection with the incident, with officers still trying to establish who was driving the red Toyota Prius.

PC Tom Smith, investigating officer of the Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit, said on Friday last week: "I would like to appeal to anyone who witnessed this incident to please come forward.

“I would also urge anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident to check any dash-cam footage.

“Anyone with information can contact police on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference ‘43190110455’ or make a report online.

“Alternatively, you can contact independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
