A CYCLIST broke his collarbone in a suspected hit and run in Stratford-upon-Avon on Monday.
Labelled "disgusting" by an off-duty nurse who came to his aid, the 63-year-old man was knocked off his bike near the railway station on the Alcester Road by a black hatchback car at 8.30pm.
Chantelle Skett was cycling home herself when she came across the man on the ground in the middle of the road. She said: “It’s horrible, I can’t believe they didn’t stop.”
A 22-year old man was later arrested on Monday on suspicion of leaving the scene of a collision. He was questioned but has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
Pedestrians stopped traffic while Miss Skett and others helped the cyclist, believed to be from Stratford, out of the road.
“We helped him up and he was obviously distressed,” she said. Feeling his collar bone through his clothes, she realised it was broken. “He couldn’t move his shoulder, so we rang an ambulance.”
Paramedics arrived on the scene quickly and took the man to Warwick Hospital, while the off-duty nurse took his bike to the ambulance station in Masons Road so he could pick it up later.
Police are now appealing for witnesses to the collision between the bike and a black hatchback car. Call PC Mark Savidge on 01926 415000.
