Officers appeal for witnesses after cyclist hurt in Sittingbourne

Kent Police is appealing for witnesses after a teenager was knocked off his bike by a car in Sittingbourne.


The incident happened at around 10.30pm on Friday 6 October 2017 in Basser Hill, Sittingbourne.


The 17-year-old teenage boy was cycling up the hill when a 4×4 type vehicle is reported to have driven up the hill and clipped the cyclist’s wheel resulting in him going over the bonnet of the vehicle and landing in a ditch.


The vehicle did not stop following the incident and the cyclist was left to make their way to a nearby house. The teenager then went to hospital to be treated for injuries to his left hand and leg and later required minor surgery.


The victim’s family attempted to retrieve the bicycle the following day however it was not at the scene.


Investigating officer, PC Ian Pickett, said: ‘The driver of the vehicle would have known that they hit a person, or at least a large object that evening and the vehicle is likely to have damage to the front and the bonnet.


‘We do not know the colour of the vehicle only that it was a 4×4 type and that it was driving with its main beam on.


‘I’d like to appeal to anyone who may know who was involved in this incident and I’d also like to appeal to the driver to encourage them to come forward.’


Anyone with information on this incident can call the Kent Police appeals line on 01795 419119 quoting reference 08-950.


Alternatively contact Kent Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
