Driver flees after cyclist hit
A DRIVER fled the scene after knocking a cyclist to the ground in a New Norfolk street last week.
New Norfolk resident Nigel Hills said he was riding his pedal-assisted bike around the corner of Burnett and George streets about midday last Wednesday when a driver in a gold Mercedes collided with him.
Mr Hills said he wasn’t badly hurt, other than receiving a few minor cuts and bruises, but said he was disappointed the driver didn’t stop.
“I was left lying there in the middle of the road and by the time I stood up the driver waved to me as he drove off,” Mr Hills said.
“To be shown no concern for the injuries I could have had was pretty disappointing.
“I felt like I was treated like an animal and could barely walk the next day.”
Mr Hills said he reported the incident to police.
