A London Cycling Campaign member was victim of a hit-and-run collision with a motor car at 8:35am this morning (10 April 2012) in East London, and he's appealing for witnesses.
The collision took place at the junction of Campbell Road and Bow Road (E3) where the cyclist was allegedly struck by a silver Daewoo Lanos SX, causing damage to his bike but fortunately no injuries (see photos above and below).
Michael Duff said, "The driver of the car got out, asked me if I was okay, but when I told him we needed to exchange details and I showed him my buckled front wheel, he said, "Oh no, no way!" and got back in his car and sped off."
Mr Duff managed to photograph the car before reporting the incident to police, submitting the photos taken at the scene
However, Mr Duff has no witness details, so if you saw the incident, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll pass on your details to him.
In a separate incident last month, a 17-year-old in Deptford was killed after being struck by a car that failed to stop at the scene. In this instance, the driver subsequently handed himself in to police.
