Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a 25-year-old man was seriously injured in a road traffic collision in Slough.
The collision occurred at approximately 8.15pm on Sunday (2/5) when a blue BMW 3 Series collided with a bus stop in Wexham Road near to Malpas Road, leaving the man, who was waiting at the bus stop, with serious, but not life threatening injuries.
The BMW did not stop at the scene and was driven into Elmwood Road, having lost a wheel, where a man ran from the vehicle.
A 33-year-old man from London was subsequently arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and driving whilst over the prescribed limit of alcohol and over the specified limit of a controlled drug.
He has since been released under investigation.
The victim remains in hospital for treatment.
Investigating officer PC Faye Aspinall of the Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit, based at Taplow, said: “This was a serious collision which has resulted in a 25-year-man being injured.
“He remains in hospital with serious, but thankfully not life-threatening injuries.
“I am appealing to anybody who witnessed the collision, or who may have dash-cam footage of the incident, to please make contact with Thames Valley Police, either online or by calling 101, quoting reference number 43210187656.
