Thames Valley Police officers are hoping witnesses will come forward after a cyclist was knocked off his bike and the car failed to stop at an incident on the weekend.

The incident happened at about 10am on Sunday, January 19 when the male cyclist was riding from Rugby to Banbury on the A423 Southam Road between Mollington and Great Bourton.

As he cycled along the road, he was involved in a collision with a car, possibly a black Toyota, which caused the near-side wing mirror of the car to detach.

The cyclist was knocked from his bike which caused him a broken ankle and a head injury that required medical treatment.

The car failed to stop at the scene and the driver of the vehicle has failed to report the collision since.

PC Russell Mizon of Thames Valley Police is keen for anyone who may have seen anything in relation to the incident to come forward.

“I would like to hear from anyone who was in the area who may have witnessed the collision, or anyone who has seen a black Toyota with a missing near-side wing mirror,” he said.

Those with any information are asked to contact PC Mizon via the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101.

Those who do not want to speak directly to the police are asked to contact Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or reporting the incident online at
