“The offending driver, who we believe was a man, has shown a complete disregard for the injured pedestrian and driven off without leaving any details or checking on his welfare.
“The pedestrian suffered bruising to his arm in the incident but his injuries could have been a lot worse, and we are extremely keen to find this driver and speak with him.”
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police on 101, quoting incident number 08:47.
