Police gave chase to a black Audi A3 or S3 that had failed to stop on Park Road in the direction of Cemetery Road, close to Barnsley town centre.

They later searched the area and found a 25-year-old man laying injured near the brow of the hill on Wood Street.

The incident happened on Sunday, May 6, at 11.30pm and more than a week later the victim remains in hospital in a stable condition.

He has been released under investigation.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: "Enquiries are now ongoing and officers would like to hear from anyone who may have seen the collision or a black Audi A3 or S3 with possible damage to the front, that may have been driving in a dangerous manner in the area around the time of the incident to report.
