Witness appeal for cyclist involved in a road traffic collision

The City of London Police is appealing to find a cyclist who was involved in a collision last week.

At approximately 6pm on Friday (20 April 2018), an argument took place between the driver of a black Toyota Prius and a cyclist on Bishopsgate.

The vehicle then accelerated and hit the rear wheel of the bike, causing the cyclist to fall to the floor.

The taxi then mounted the pavement and hit some pedestrians. One pedestrian was injured as he tried to move out of the way.

The 45-year-old driver of the car, from Newham, London, was arrested for assault and dangerous driving.

 

Detective Constable Kevin Summers, from the City of London Police, said:

“We would like to speak to the cyclist involved so that we can hear his account of what happened and so that we can check on his welfare.

“If this was you or you know who he is, please get in touch with us.”

If you are the cyclist involved or if you have any information on this incident, or please call 0207 601 2222.

Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or give information via http://www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
