A Crosspool resident has been in touch to appeal for information regarding a hit and run incident on Sandygate Road that left him in hospital and his bicycle seriously damaged.
On the evening of 18 November 2010 at about 6:35pm, James Huntingdon of St Francis Close was knocked off his bike at the Sandygate Road/Coldwell Lane/Carsick Hill Road junction.
He had turned right from Carsick Hill Road and was travelling on Sandygate Road towards Crosspool when a silver Toyota Celica pulled out of Coldwell Lane and collided with the cyclist’s left side.
Although James was taken to hospital, thankfully his injuries aren’t too serious. However, his bike was damaged – leaving him with a large repair bill – and the police have not yet managed to trace the driver.
Did you see the accident? Or do know anyone with a silver Toyota Celica that has recently had damage to the front of the car?
If so, you can help James by contacting the police on 0114 220 202, referencing incident number 829/18 November.
This Saturday 20 November between 10am and 12 noon the Crosspool police box on Lydgate Lane will be open to allow residents to raise issues either with the police or possibly a councillor.
The police are currently investigating the anti-social behavior of a small number of students in the precinct at lunchtime. Drug dealing is also becoming a concern, and the police would welcome any information that you may have.
