Police Need To Trace Driver After Cyclist Injured


10:18am 15th June 2012

Dorset Police are trying to trace the driver of a car who was involved in an accident with a cyclist in Dorchester.

The collision between a silver-grey car with a sliding door driven by a woman and a cyclist occurred at about 2pm on Wednesday 13 June 2012 on Damers Road.

Both parties stopped to find out the extent of any damage or injury.

Contrary to initial assessment, it has now become clear that the cyclist, a 59-year-old man from Dorchester, sustained a serious elbow injury.

Police Constable Gemma Nowell-Smith, of Dorchester police, said: “The driver of the car stopped at the scene and also took the cyclist to Dorset County Hospital for a check up. Therefore, this is not a fail to stop collision.

“At the time the cyclist was of the opinion that he was not injured and therefore did not take the drivers details.

“Following medical assessments he is now going to have a serious operation to his arm.

“I am appealing for the driver of the silver-grey car to come forward.

“I am also keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident as I believe there were a lot of witnesses around at the time.”

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 13:283. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
