A pedestrian fighting for his life in hospital after being in collision with a car in Bradford has undergone extensive surgery, say police.
A spokesman said the man, aged in his 30s, was still in a critical but stable condition last night.
He was crossing Wakefield Road during a heavy downpour on Friday evening when a black Mercedes E280 collided with him. The car, which stopped at the scene, was travelling away from Bradford city centre.
Police said the driver was not arrested as a result of the collision, which happened at traffic lights at Wakefield Road’s junction with Lorne Street, at 6.17pm.
The pedestrian was taken to Leeds General Infirmary with multiple injuries, including to his head and back.
Wakefield Road was closed between its junctions with Neville Road and Sticker Lane roundabouts until about 10pm. Officers are asking witnesses to call 101.
