Police say driver "may not have realised" that Lincolnshire cyclist was pushed into railings

“Thankfully cuts and bruises repair and metal is replaceable,” says cyclist’s partner

Lincolnshire Police have launched an investigation after a Boston cyclist was forced into railings by a car. A Facebook post by the cyclist’s partner claims the driver left the scene. Police said the driver “may not have realised” what had happened.

Lincolnshire Live reports that a man was riding along John Adams Way on Tuesday morning when he was involved in a collision with a silver Honda Civic.

His partner wrote: “At about 11.20am this morning a car pushed my husband into railing on his push bike on John Adams Way at Eagles fish shop on the way to Vauxhall bridge coming home for lunch. Thankfully cuts and bruises repair and metal is replaceable.

“The car was a silver Honda Vivic that did not stop. My husband was in the railing with a twisted bike so couldn't get after them to see the registration.

“They never stopped [and] the police have been notified. Please let us or the police know if anything was witnessed.”

A Lincolnshire Police spokesperson said: “We believe a silver Honda Civic car may have been involved in the collision and we would like to speak with the driver who may not have realised this has happened.

“This happened on John Adams Way in Boston. The cyclist received minor injuries. Anyone with any information should call 101, quoting incident number 136 of January 15.”
