A BRITISH pedestrian was killed when he was hit by a car on the N-332 at Guardamar del Segura on the Costa Blanca.
The 61 year-old Robert Sneddon lived in Guardamar and was hit by a UK-registered car on Sunday night with the driver fleeing the scene and abandoning the vehicle according to the Guardia Civil. A second person involved was unhurt.
The hunt is now on for the driver of the white Land Rover Discovery with the registration number SK13 MWM.
Officers from the Guardia Civil in Torrevieja have pledged they will get the driver to court and said: “Sooner rather than later we will catch you. If you present yourself voluntarily, things will be better for you.”
As they sent their condolences to the family of the victim, Mandy Sneddon the daughter of the victim took to social media to urge the fugitive driver to hand himself in: “I am the daughter of the man left for dead on the N332 like an animal. I came on holiday for the summer so my little girl could spend time with her granddad. It was the worst news I have ever had to break or hear.”
“If anyone knows anything or can think of anything relevant please tell the police. The smallest detail may help and to the person or people responsible. If you’re reading this, please come forward. You’ll have this on your conscience for the rest of your life. My dad’s rearranged face will haunt me for the rest of my life. My family wants closure.”
