The police are appealing for witnesses after a man was left with ‘serious’ head injuries when he was involved in a collision with a car in the early hours of Friday morning.
Officers said the 19-year-old student had been walking along Mary Arches Street, in Exeter, when the incident occurred shortly after midnight.
The man, who is not originally from Exeter, sustained serious head injuries and was taken to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, where the police say he remains in a critical condition.
A Devon and Cornwall police spokesperson said: “Police would like to hear from anyone who may have been driving in the area at the time or may have witnessed the collision.”
Mary Arches Street was closed while initial police investigations were carried out and those investigations continue – although the area has now been reopened to traffic.
