Appeal following fail to stop traffic collision in Lancaster

Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a cyclist sustained a shoulder injury after colliding with a van that failed to stop in Lancaster - in the same location as two accidents last year.

The collision took place around 2.00pm on Thursday 13th February on the pedestrian crossing on Cable Street at the junction with Water Street.

The pedal cyclist has been using the crossing when a Citroen White Berlingo has collided with him and failed to stop at the scene. 

The cyclist, a 26 year old local man, attended Royal Lancaster Infirmary suffering from a minor shoulder injury but was not detained.

PC Kevin Illingworth from the Road Policing Unit said: “An investigation is underway into the circumstances of exactly what happened but I would appeal to anybody that witnessed this collision or for the driver of the van involved to contact police on 101.”

The registration of the Citroen White Berlingo is believed to be PE11 MTF.
