A woman has shared shocking images of her husband’s injuries after he was flung 8ft into the air by a speeding hit-and-run driver.
Father-of-two Dom Allan, 36, stepped out of a taxi outside his home in Stourbridge, West Midlands, when he was run over.
He was rushed to hospital with horrific injuries including a smashed skull, broken vertebrae, broken knee and a fractured eye socket.
Mr Allan, a nurse, had been out with his friend when he got out of a taxi outside his house at 12.30am on May 12.
His wife, Becky, 35, has released graphic pictures of him lying in intensive care after the horror crash while police hunt the hit-and-run driver.
Mrs Allan, who has two children Amelia, three, and Elliott, one, said: “Dom had gone out for a drink with his friend and had got a taxi home.
“He got out on the road side and literally moments later he was struck by a speeding car.
“His friend said there was a huge bang and Dom was sent flying.
“He landed on the pedestrian crossing outside our front door and was bleeding all over our front step.
“I was shaking and couldn’t even put my shoes on. I just thought the worse.
“I couldn’t believe he had been so close to our home – there was blood all over the front doorstep. I was in bits.”
Mr Allan was rushed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham where he underwent surgery for a bleed on the brain.
He was sent to intensive care and put under heavy sedation. Doctors say he is expected to make a full recovery but it could take six months.
Mrs Allan, who works in a care home, said: “It’s disgusting that someone could just do this and drive away.
“He could have been dead and that car just hasn’t stopped.
“The road has two CCTV cameras but neither of them was working on the night but police are hunting the driver.
“Poor Dom has no idea what happened. One moment he was closing the taxi door and the next he was lying bleeding in the road.”
West Midlands Police are investigating the incident.
