A MAN has been arrested for an alleged hit and run accident that took place in Palma this month.
Police report that the 49-year-old victim was injured and disoriented when he was found wandering around the Son Banya neighbourhood on November 3, but that he couldn’t remember what had happened to him. He was subsequently taken to Son Llàtzer hospital where doctors determined that he had several fractures and he also had to undergo an operation to remove his spleen.
An investigation was launched with officers tracking down a car with a huge dent in it. When the owner was questioned he admitted that he ran over the victim and fled the scene because he was scared of the repercussions.
