A MAN was seriously hurt after being hit by a car in a village near Hereford.

Emergency services were called to the junction of Station Road and Mill Lane in Credenhill at around 10.10pm on Saturday (February 24).

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesperson said: "An ambulance, paramedic officer and BASICS doctor were sent to the scene where, on arrival, crews found a pedestrian and a car had been involved in a collision.


"The pedestrian, a man, was treated by medics for potentially serious injuries before being conveyed to Hereford County Hospital for further treatment."

In a post on West Mercia Police's Neighbour Matters page, PCSO Adam Westlake said the driver was arrested on suspicion of drink and drug driving.

"This is a reminder of the dangers of driving under the influence and the potential consequences it can have," PCSO Westlake said.

"We urge everyone to always prioritise safety on the roads, whether you're a pedestrian or a driver."
