A MAN is fighting for his life after a hit and run incident.
The man, named locally as Antony Dyson, suffered head injuries and is in a serious condition at the Walton Centre in Liverpool after he was hit by a vehicle close to the St David’s Park Hotel roundabout at Ewloe yesterday.
North Wales Police and the Welsh Ambulance Service staff rushed to the scene at the junction of the A494 and A5125 at about 12.30am.
The roundabout was closed throughout the night while forensic investigations were carried out at the scene.
Mr Dyson was taken by ambulance to the Countess of Chester Hospital before being transferred to the specialist head injuries centre in Liverpool where he is believed to still be unconscious.
According to police, the 22-year-old from the Ewloe area was last heard from at about 11.45pm on Wednesday.
One of his sisters, Nicola Dyson, has said on Facebook: “He was lying on the slip road by St David’s. He’s unconscious on a breathing machine with half his face stitched up, a broken elbow and suspected broken leg.”
Another sister, Clare Dyson, posted: “He has been put on life support until they know the swelling and bleed on his brain has gone down.”
Katherine Say, who works at Ewloe Post Office, arrived for work at 5am.
She said: “The roundabout was closed off and there were four or five police cars there and lots of police staff dotted around the roundabout.”
Ewloe Cllr David Mackie said: “I’m very concerned to hear about this accident.
Nobody likes to hear of anyone getting hurt and they have my sympathy.”
North Wales Police are urging witnesses to come forward.
A spokesman said: “Police have renewed their appeal for witnesses after a man was found with serious injuries at a roundabout in Flintshire.
“Police believe the man was involved in a road traffic collision at the junction of the A494 and A5125 adjacent to the St David’s Park Hotel in Ewloe.
“Anyone who may have been in the area between 11.35pm on Wednesday night and 12.45am on Thursday and can help with inquires is asked to call North Wales Police on 101.”
