HIT AND RUN
BUNDABERG police have conducted investigations into an alleged hit and run traffic crash after a boy was found on a Walkervale street on Saturday evening, November 5. Police investigations have determined the bike chain appears to have come off and trapped the cyclist’s shoe in the gear wheel, causing the cyclist to be thrown from the bicycle and land on the road. Investigations are unable to confirm any evidence or indication of a vehicle being involved in this incident. You can visit Transport and Main Roads for a bicycle maintenance check list you can follow for daily, weekly and monthly checks. Police encourage cyclists riding at night to wear light-coloured clothing, a helmet and have a working bike light.
