Police appeal for witnesses after van collides with cyclist

Police are appealing for witnesses, after a white van with a trailer knocked a cyclist in Weymouth off his bike last week, then kept driving. The 47-year-old cyclist's back was injured.

It happened along King Street, just before the Swannery Bridge.

The police say the driver may not have known they had knocked anybody over.

“I am appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the collision or the driver of the white van to come forward.

“It might be the case the van driver may have been unaware of the collision, which is why they failed to stop, but I ask that person to do the right thing and come forward to assist with my enquiries.”
