Man left with serious injuries

Detectives investigating a serious hit-and-run collision in Plymouth are asking for the public’s help to trace a car sought in connection with the offence.

A 25-year-old man sustained potentially life-changing injuries after being deliberately struck by a car in Stuart Road around 1.30am on Tuesday 27 November.

Detectives are investigating the incident as attempted murder and are seeking a white BMW in relation to their enquiries.

A police spokesman said: “The matter is now being treated as attempted murder and we are appealing for any witnesses to the offence.

“We are particularly keen to trace a white BMW 330 saloon, registration number WX10 BVO, in connection with this incident. This vehicle is likely to have front end damage. Furthermore we would like to hear from any garages or local car repair shops if this vehicle has been brought in with any damage.

“Anyone with dash cam footage, in particular taxi drivers, who were in the area of Mutley Plain, North Hill, Stuart Road and Alma Road between 1am and 2am that day are also requested to come forward.

“Lastly we are asking local business owners with external CCTV in those same areas to check whether they have footage of a white BMW and a grey saloon vehicle travelling at speed between those times.”

Anyone with information to assist with the enquiry is asked to contact police via or by phone on 101, quoting crime number CR/109778/18.
