Witness appeal to bike incident in Swindon

Alert message sent 06/12/2018 17:00:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We're appealing for witnesses after a young cyclist was involved in an incident where a car driver failed to stop. 

Between 7.30am and 7.45am yesterday (05/12), the 21-year-old woman was cycling along Kennedy Drive when a car came out of a junction quickly causing her to brake hard to avoid a collision;  as a result she fell off hitting her face on the ground causing a fractured jaw. 

The driver of the car drove off without attempting to stop. 

The woman was taken to hospital where she was treated. 

The car, which is described as dark in colour, drove out of Kennedy Drive and continued in the direction of Eldene Drive. 

If you heard or saw this incident or anything suspicious in this area around this time - perhaps a car driving at speed or erratically - then please contact PC Corrina Wiltshire on 101 quoting reference number 54180115215.  Alternatively you can call anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
