A POSTWOMAN knocked off her motorbike in a ‘hit and run’ has appealed for help in tracing the driver.
Ana Belen Hinojosa Holgado suffered fractures of the tibia and fibula and needed surgery as a result of the incident, which happened on the Esporles road in Establiments, Palma on August 23.
She has since uploaded a video to her Facebook account, recorded from her hospital bed, pleading for witnesses.
Ana Belen says she was riding her motorcycle when she was struck from behind, and was apparently left lying on the ground in pain as her assailant drive off.
She said: “I do not know if he got confused, he was on his cell phone, or if he had smoked something, but he hit me from behind, leaving me lying on the ground. I shouted to him to stop.”
Ana Belen added: “I want to see the face of that person, and for them to at least give me an explanation or say I’m sorry.
“It’s broken my leg and maybe ruined my life.”
She added that the car was a silver-grey Ford Fiesta, with an ‘L’ plate, and could well have a dent on the right side, a missing right rear-view mirror and yellow marks after colliding with the Correos motorcycle ridden by Ana Belen.
Posting on Twitter, a police spokesperson said: “We are asking for your help in locating the driver of a car, a grey Ford, who has run over a female postal worker, with serious injury, at Esporles, 58, at 1pm. He’s on the run.”
Anybody with information is asked to call 092.
