A motorcyclist sustained ‘serious injuries’ to both his arms after being struck by a car in a hit and run collision on Sunday.

The incident occurred at 7.45pm as a silver coloured Vauxhall Astra, being driven down Hart Lane towards the junction at Hitchin Road, collided with the motorbike.

Having hit the motorcyclist the driver of the Astra waited for 10 – 15 seconds before driving off at speed in the direction of Stockingstone Road.

PC Mark Casey, investigating, is appealing for witnesses to the collision to come forward.

He said: “While the motorcyclist’s injuries are not life threatening the fact that the driver of the car has failed to stop is very serious indeed.

“The silver Astra will have suffered significant impact damage to the driver’s door and wing so if anyone sees this car or is asked to repair it then please come forward and speak to the police.”

Anyone with information relating to this incident can contact PC Casey from the Roads Policing Unit, in confidence, on 101, or text information to 07786 200011.
