New appeal to find man after injured passenger left in crashed car

POLICE hunting a driver who fled the scene of a crash leaving a badly injured woman passenger trapped in the wreckage, have named a man they want to speak to in connection with the incident.

Waqas Hussain is being sought by officers investigating the collision which happened on Bradford Road in Clayton, close to the junction with Hunters Park Avenue on July 17 this year. Police have also released a photo of him.

A 20-year-old woman suffered serious injuries when a Volkswagen Golf left the road and collided with a garage and tree. She has since been allowed home from hospital.

A police spokesman said: “Hussain is 22-years-old and is believed to reside in Great Horton. He also has links to the Clayton, West Bowling and Lidget Green areas of the city.”

He is described as medium build, around 5ft 6ins tall and speaks with an Asian accent.

Officers have conducted extensive enquiries to locate Hussain, who is not thought to pose a risk to the public, added the spokesman.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts should contact the Safer Roads and Neighbourhood Support team on 101, quoting crime reference 13170327764.

Information can also be reported anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
