A CYCLIST was left with a fractured collar bone after he was knocked off his bike on a Hampshire road.

The 66-year-old man was hit by a dark car as he cycled along Lordswood Road, Southampton, close to the junction of Malwood Avenue, around 9am on Saturday.

The car involved did not stop at the scene, but officers think it is possible that the driver may not have realised they had hit a cyclist.

PC Peter Watson is investigating. He said: “I’m appealing for anyone who was driving a black or dark coloured car on Lordswood Road and remembers passing a cyclist to get in touch.

"The cyclist was wearing a blue helmet and had panniers on the rear of his bike.”

Anyone with information about the incident should call PC Watson at Shirley Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
