Cyclist knocked off bike in Heysham

Police are appealing for witnesses after a teenager was knocked off his bike in Heysham, after being clipped by an HGV.

Around 7.30am today (Wednesday 29th June), the 18-year-old was cycling from the direction of Morecambe towards  Heysham along the A589 Heysham Road when he was clipped by a HGV at the junction of Seymore Grove.

The HGV failed to stop and the teenager, who is from Heysham, fell from his bike suffering a number cuts and bruises and was treated at Royal Lancaster Infirmary.

“I would appeal to anybody who may have witnessed this incident to contact police," says PC Shaun Canning of The Road Policing Unit. “The HGV failed to stop at the scene but it may well be that the driver didn’t realise he had collided with the cyclist. I would urge the driver to come forward.”

• Anybody with any information is asked to contact police on 08451 25 35 45 quoting log number 0223 of 29th June.
