Police say they have tracked down the driver and vehicle believed to have been involved in a suspected hit and run on the Penryn bypass at the weekend.

A 41-year-old man local to the area suffered potentially life-threatening injuries as he walked along the A39, near the Asda end of the bypass between Penryn and Falmouth, at around 4.20am on Saturday.

However, the driver of the car involved failed to stop at the scene.

The road was shut for more than eight hours while police carried out investigations on the road, where a large amount of debris from a vehicle was found.

Following a police appeal for information, a force spokesperson said this morning: "Enquiries were carried out to locate the vehicle involved after it had failed to stop at the scene.

"Both the driver and the vehicle suspected of being involved in the incident have since been located and the driver is assisting police with their enquiries."

Anyone with further information about the incident is asked to contact police via 101@dc.police.uk or by calling 101, quoting log number 142 of 14/04/18.
