ON Tuesday, 19 December 2017 Merseyside Police received a called, at 5.10pm, following an incident involving a black and white scrambler bike and a pedestrian. We are told that the bike had collided with a pedestrian, on Gorsey Lane, Litherland, near its junction with Pendle Drive, before crashing into barriers. The rider of the bike left the scene, on foot, and was reported to have ran into a nearby housing estate. It is believed he was wearing a blue helmet. The pedestrian was a 62 year old man, who was taken to Hospital and treated for leg, arm and back injuries. His condition was described as serious. Police are still appealing for witnesses following a collision and anyone with information is asked to contact Merseyside Police on:- 101 quoting log:- '805 of 19 December 2017.' Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on:- 0800 555 111. A 24 year old man who had been arrested following the collision has since been released without charge. Detective Inspector Simon Vaughan said:- "If you saw a black and white scrambler bike being ridden in an anti social manner, on Gorsey Lane, shortly before this incident, or witnessed the incident itself, at around 5.10pm, on Tuesday, please come forward. We would also appeal to anyone who may have dashcam footage or CCTV footage of any part of this incident, before, during and after to get in touch."
