Police are seeking information after the hit-and-run in London Colney


The driver of a BMW who was involved in a hit-and-run accident which left a cyclist with serious injuries is being sought by police.

The accident happened at 6.40am on Friday, November 18, at the junction of London Colney High Street and St Anne’s Road.

The cyclist was approaching the junction when he was in collision with the BMW, described as either a blue or black 1 series. The driver is believed to have lost control of the vehicle and ended up on the opposite side of the carriageway before driving off towards The Bell roundabout.

The cyclist, a man in his 50s, suffered a broken back and an arterial bleed. He was taken to Barnet Hospital for treatment.

Pc Rishi Patel, from the St Albans intervention and response team, said: “The cyclist suffered some nasty injuries but he is now on the slow road to recovery.

“I am appealing to the driver of the BMW to please make contact with me as they may be able to assist me with my enquiries.

“I am also keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident, or who saw a BMW making off from the scene.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the police non-emergency number 101 or the independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Alternatively, use the anonymous online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and there is no need to go to court.
