A 17-year-old girl has been knocked off her moped in a fail-to-stop collision in Weymouth.

The accident involving a Sym Jet4 moped and an unknown 4x4 happened at around 4pm on Tuesday 29 January 2019. 

The moped was travelling along Queen Street toward King Street when the rider was knocked off by a car, described as a green Mitsubishi Shogun. The driver of the car reversed, drove around the rider, continued along Stanley Street and turned right into Crescent Street.

The rider of the moped, a 17-year-old local girl, sustained cuts and bruises and concussion. Her moped was also damaged.

Police Constable Don Duchscherer, of Weymouth police, said: "I am appealing to anyone who was in the Queen Street area at 4pm on Tuesday 29 January 2019 and either witnessed the collision or saw a 4x4 being driven in the area to please contact me.

"I am also keen to hear from anyone who has seen a green Mitsubishi Shogun or similar that has recently sustained damage in unusual circumstances."
