Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Porirua po­lice are urg­ing the mo­torist in­volved in an in­ci­dent on the Hay­wards Hill last Tues­day to come for­ward.

About 7.50am, a 37-year-old cy­clist was clipped on the right side of his body by a dark­coloured 4WD, caus­ing him to fall off his bike. He has since been dis­charged from Welling­ton Hos­pi­tal with a frac­tured arm and two sprained wrists.

Se­nior Sergeant Steve Sar­gent says the in­ci­dent oc­curred not far from Moon­shine Rd, on State High­way 58, in the early stages of the up­hill pass­ing lanes.

‘‘ The driver . . . may not have re­alised they’d clipped the cy­clist. The driver was trav­el­ling to­wards the Hutt Val­ley and we’d re­ally like that per­son to come for­ward and con­tact us, to as­sist po­lice with our in­quiries.’’

Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion should phone Porirua po­lice on 04 238 1400 or phone Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
