A nurse has been killed outside a hospital where he worked in a ‘hit and run’ incident.
The man, aged 46, was hit by a Vauxhall Astra outside Wrexham Maelor Hospital, North Wales, shortly before 8:30am on Thursday, October 22. The nurse died at the scene despite the best efforts of emergency staff.
Police say that the driver of the car failed to stop and have launched a manhunt to track him down.
Chief Superintendent Alex Goss said: “This is a tragic incident and our thoughts are with the man’s family, friends, colleagues and all those affected, including the emergency services and health staff who were in attendance last night.
“Our sincerest condolences go to them all at this incredibly difficult time and specially trained police family liaison officers are assisting them.
Police are looking for witnesses who may have seen a black-coloured Vauxhall Astra in or around the area of Watery Road.
Gill Harris, acting chief executive at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, said: “We have tragically lost a valued and long-standing member of our team in Wrexham and our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with their family today.
