The family of a 10-year-old girl who was seriously injured in an alleged hit and run in Peterborough City Centre have thanked hospital staff, paramedics and the public for their support.
Elisha Hills-Steedman was hit by the car as she walked with her mum back from a family trip to Peterborough Museum at about 3.30pm on Sunday, February 12.
The family were on the Bourges Boulevard pavement near the Park Inn hotel when they were struck by the Ford Focus.
Elisha suffered a fractured skull in the incident, but is now recovering at home in Muskham, Bretton.
Today, her parents, Michelle, who was also badly injured in the incident, and Andy Steedman thanked all who had supported the family over the last fortnight.
Michelle said: “Elisha and the whole family would like to thank all the Peterborough City hospital staff, paramedics, witnesses and well wishers who have been to visit and sent lovely messages and gifts. We are totally overwhelmed with all the support.”
