Driver flees af­ter cy­clist hit

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS -

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.
