A WOMAN was taken to hospital after she was hit by a car and thrown over a barrier in Plymouth.
Police say they are searching for the driver of a red Volvo car in connection with the incident which happened on Mutley Plain at 3:40pm yesterday.
The woman was crossing Houndiscombe Road, near the Dominos Pizza outlet, when she was allegedly struck by a car forcing her into a barrier and landing on the other side.
Police and paramedics closed off the scene at the Ford Park Road junction while investigations were carried out.
The injured woman complained of left-hand side hip and stomach pains and was taken to Derriford Hospital.
She did not receive any broken bones but was kept in hospital overnight for observations. Her condition is not believed to be serious.
Inspector Ian Milligan, of Devon and Cornwall Police, said: "It doesn't appear to have been a deliberate incident but we are satisfied that the driver should have been aware they'd been involved in some sort of collision.
"However, we are keeping an open mind and would encourage anyone with information to get in touch."
Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident to contact them on 101.
