A driver who suffered a broken leg after being the victim of a hit and run on the M4 motorway managed to drive the remaining 60 miles to work before calling an ambulance.

The man had pulled over on the motorway early on Saturday morning, March 16, to check the roof box of his car.

While he was out of his vehicle, he was hit by a passing car, resulting in him suffering a broken ankle, a broken leg, a broken elbow and a 12-inch cut to his arm.

Police say that the other driver involved failed to stop at the scene of the accident, which is believed to have happened sometime between 5.30am and 6am on Saturday morning.

Despite his injuries the man managed to get back into his silver Kia Ceed and drive to his place of work 60 miles away in Cardiff, where his colleagues called an ambulance.

PC Andy Lee, from Tri-Force roads policing, said: "At this stage we are not sure where exactly the collision occurred, but we know it was on the westbound carriageway and we believe it may have been close to the Leigh Delamere services.

"Do you remember seeing this car parked on the hard shoulder somewhere on the westbound hard shoulder?

"Were you the car that collided with him and perhaps you didn't realise the extent of his injuries?

Wiltshire Police would like to hear from anyone with any information, including anyone who may have dashcam footage which could assist with their enquiries.
