Video: Driver hits cyclist in Swindon – police appealing for witnesses

Incident took place in Gorse Hill last Wednesday

Wiltshire Police has released CCTV footage of a car which collided with a cyclist in Swindon and failed to stop. The incident took place just before 4.30am on Wednesday January 25.

A man was cycling along Chapel Street, Gorse Hill, towards Cirencester Way, when a car (believed to be a Vauxhall Corsa) pulled out of Buller Street and drove into the side of him.

The driver did not stop and drove away in the opposite direction, towards Cricklade Road, switching their lights off as they did so.

PC Jack Newman said: "Luckily the cyclist was unhurt, but this could have ended differently; the male cyclist could have been seriously hurt or even killed.

"We would like to speak to anyone who may have heard or saw what happened or saw a Vauxhall Corsa style car driving in this area at this time – possibly driving erratically.

"Also, if you were the driver of this car – please consider your conscience and come forward."

Anyone with information can contact police on 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111.
