ACT Policing is seeking to speak with the driver of a car involved in a collision with a young cyclist on Friday (July 18).
About 2.30pm, a teenage boy was riding a bicycle across the intersection of Iron Knob and Newcastle Street, Fyshwick, and was involved in a collision with a silver car. As a result, the teenage boy was knocked to the ground. The female driver of the car exited the vehicle to check on the boy’s welfare.
The driver did not provide their details to the young cyclist or report the collision to police.
A statutory reporting requirement is in place in the ACT, which means that a collision in the ACT must be reported by both parties within 24-hours.
Police hope to speak with the driver of the silver vehicle or anyone who may have witnessed the incident in Fyshwick. If you have any information about this incident please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.
