Alert message sent 23/04/2019 09:35:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police


We’re appealing for information following a fail to stop incident in Wanborough.

Shortly after 11.30am on Sunday 21 April, a 54-year-old man was cycling along Foxhill on a straight stretch of road in the direction of Baydon, when he was struck from behind by a vehicle. 

The impact of the strike punctured his rear tyre and shattered his carbon fibre bike frame, causing irreversible damage to the bike which is worth approximately £10,000.

The driver of the vehicle made off without checking on the welfare of the cyclist or to provide insurance details. 

PC Connor Crespin said: “The vehicle involved is described as a green coloured BMW, believed to be approximately 12 years old. 

“I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time who may have information which could assist in identifying the vehicle or the driver to come forward. 

“This incident could easily have resulted in serious injury to the cyclist - he was fortunate to only sustain a minor scratch to his leg."

Anyone with information should call 101 and quote crime reference number 54190038012.

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
