A man is in hospital after a car was “deliberately” driven into him.

The incident happened yesterday, May 15, just after 6pm on Berkley Street, close to the junction with Upper Stanhope Street in Toxteth. Police confirmed a 31-year old man was hit by a grey Mercedes GLA. After running the man over, three men got out of the car and assaulted him.

The Mercedes was subsequently driven off down Emerson Street. It was found a short time later on Cairns Street and seized by police for forensic examination.

The victim was treated by paramedics at the scene and taken to hospital for treatment for cuts to the head and a leg injury. His condition is described as stable.

A neighbour at the scene told the ECHO the driver of the car “tried to tackle” the injured man and attempted to remove a gold chain he was wearing.

He said: “He pulled it off. The chain broke and was in the road in pieces. Kids were trying to pick the pieces up.” The neighbour added: “The guy who was hit tried to get hold of the car as it drove away and he went under it. Then the car smashed into the fence.”
