A WITNESS to a crash in Evesham – which left a cyclist with head injuries – is being sought by police.
West Mercia Police want to speak to the person who stopped to help the man after he was knocked off his bike at the junction of Coronation Street with Elm Road at 7.15am on March 23.
The cyclist was travelling along Elm Road and the vehicle hit him from behind as he was turning into Coronation Street. The vehicle failed to stop after making contact with the cyclist, who was left with fractures to his face and hand.
PC Alexander McPherson, from Evesham police station, said: “I appreciate this incident happened some time ago now, but we are particularly keen to trace the person who helped the cyclist to his feet after coming off his bike.
“It would appear that this person saw what happened and may be a vital witness in connection with our investigation into this collision.
“Unfortunately, the victim has little memory of the incident and cannot offer either a description of the vehicle he collided with or of the person who came to his aid. This collision could have been a lot worse and it is fortunate that the cyclist was not seriously injured.
“Because of this, I would appeal directly to the person who helped the cyclist and anyone else who saw what happened to get in touch."
Anyone with information can call PC McPherson on 03003 333000, quoting incident 121N 260312, or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
