A firefighter is in hospital with serious injuries after being hit by a vehicle that failed to stop at the scene of the accident.
The driver of a Peugeot hit two pedestrians before driving off without stopping.
The incident occurred on Saturday 11th August at around 23:00 hrs on George Street, Corby.
One of the pedestrians, an on-duty firefighter, was rushed to hospital with a number of serious injuries which are not believed to be life threatening.
The second person hit by the vehicle did not require any medical attention.
The vehicle involved in the incident was later found by Police abandoned in near-by Studfall Avenue.
Chief fire officer Darren Dovey, from Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service, told the Northamptonshire Telegraph:
‘I am thankful that our firefighter did not suffer life threatening injuries in the incident, however he does remain in hospital with what doctors are describing as a range of serious injuries.
‘We continue to provide support to him, his family and colleagues who were left very shaken by the incident and aim to help him return to work when he is fully recovered’.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
