Around 8pm on Sunday 27 October, police were called to Rochdale Road in Oldham to reports that a car had collided with a pedestrian and failed to stop.
Emergency services attended and a man in his 20s was taken to hospital with serious injuries to his head and legs.
The man remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.
Rochdale Road has now been re-opened and enquiries remain ongoing.
Police Sergeant Joseph Barron, of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “The failure to stop by this motorist - after causing serious injury to a young man – is absolutely shocking behaviour and shows a complete lack of concern for the welfare of others..
“We are working to establish the circumstances that led to this collision, and I would like to make a direct plea to anyone who may have seen anything that can assist our enquiries.
“I’d ask any witnesses or anyone with any information, dash-cam or CCTV footage of the collision to please get in touch as soon as possible.”
