Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident, which happened on Camp Road on September 28 at about 8.20pm.

A St Albans Deliveroo rider who stumbled across the scene, Harry St John-Paulton, 17, said: “I came out of the shop round the corner and saw the lady on the floor, people had come running over, and it took the ambulance 15 minutes to get arrive.

“Poor woman - it was very worrying, and there was quite a lot of blood everywhere.”

He said he could not believe the driver had not stopped and had “done something like that”.

“Have you come across a vehicle which has suffered fresh, unexplained damage or noticed anyone acting suspiciously? Any information, no matter how seemingly insignificant, could greatly assist our enquiries.”
