The boy was knocked to the ground after being hit by a car in Clun Road at around 2.30pm last Friday (July 22). The car failed to stop. He had been walking his bicycle across the road from Egan Way towards Wickbourne stores when he was hit. A Sussex Police spokesperson said the car is believed to be a grey Nissan Qashqai or similar. It continued south-east along Clun Road towards Wick Farm Road. The ten-year-old received cuts and bruises and was treated at Worthing Hospital. Anyone who saw anything, or who knows the driver is asked to contact Sussex Police on 101, or email [email protected], quoting 899 of 22/07.
