Hit-and-run OAP in pain

A PENSIONER involved in a hit-and-run in Sudbury is suffering memory loss and is struggling to sleep as a result of her ordeal.

Donna Rumsey, 84, was hit by a vehicle while feeding ducks in Brundon Lane with her granddaughter Olivia, leaving her with a broken collarbone and several cuts.

Her son John, from Great Cornard, said: “She is back at home but she’s not good. She suffers from memory loss, she can’t sleep and is in a lot of pain.

“She was as bright as a button before the accident but it is at the point now where we will have to look at our options in regard to her ongoing care. She has carers going in all the time and we go twice a day to make sure she’s eating.”

Mr Rumsey’s offer of a £5,000 reward for information has yielded no results, although people have been supportive of the family.

“We’ve had lots of texts, cards and messages,” he said. “It renews your faith in humanity a bit.”

A Suffolk Police spokeswoman said: “No arrests have been made and inquiries are ongoing.”
