Appeal After 16 Year Old Cyclist Hurt
Police in Christchurch are appealing for witnesses after a teenage cyclist was injured.
At 5.24pm on Tuesday 2 October 2012 the 16-year-old boy, who's from the area, was cycling along Fairmile Road near to the junction with Mill Road when he came off his bike.
He was left with head, shoulder and leg injuries and was taken to Poole Hospital but was later released.
Police Constable David Lawrence, of Dorset Police Traffic Unit, said: “A passing motorist stopped at the scene to help and took the bicycle to the boy’s home address and informed his parents.
“I would like to speak with the motorist who helped and urge him to contact police.
“I am also appealing for anyone who has witnessed the incident to call Dorset Police as soon as possible.”
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 3:170. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
