Well done to the person who ‘chased down’ the car which failed to stop at the scene of the crash. Hope cyclist recovers quickly.

Low life not stopping for a young lad

“The driver of the car was not injured.”
Colour me shocked.
Who could have guessed 2 tons of metal, glass and plastic on top of a seatbelt and airbag could protect someone against a bicycle…

Sadly this report is inaccurate. The cyclist is actually in his 60’s and definitely not 16.
Please get your facts correct.

16 or 60 the low life still didnt stop
