Police appealing for help
after a motorcyclist collides with cyclist
MERSEYSIDE Police are appealing for
witnesses or anyone who can identify a motorcyclist who collided with a cyclist,
on a footpath in Aintree. The incident happened at around 5.10pm, on Thursday,
23 July 2015, on the loop line footpath near Crescent Road in Aintree. Officers
believe the suspect was riding an unregistered off road motorcycle at high speed
on the footpath and ran head on into a pedal cyclist, causing serious injuries
to the cyclist, including a broken collarbone and 3 broken ribs. The pedal
cyclist is profoundly deaf and so did not hear the approaching motorcycle until
it collided with him. Officers have issued a picture of a person who they would
like to speak to in connection with the incident.
Inspector Chris Dillon said:- "We would appeal to anyone who was using
the loop line on that day and who may have witnessed the incident, or knows who
was riding the bike to come forward. The offender's actions are particularly
heartless and callous as he stopped and looked at the seriously injured cyclist
for a few seconds before riding away at speed."
Anybody who may have seen the incident, or who can identify the person in the
photograph, is asked to contact the MSOC Roads Policing Department on:- 0151 777
5747 or Crimestoppers on:- 0800 555 111.
