A CYCLIST has been left with a dislocated shoulder and broken arm after hit and run incident in a Hampshire village.

Ken Lefley had been travelling home from work when a red hatchback car slammed into him at the junction of Hound Way and Woolston Road in Netley.

After crashing to the floor the 49-year-old spent six hours in A&E in Southampton where he was treated for his injuries.

The incident, which happened just after 6pm on Monday, left the commercial broker shocked and covered in bruises.

Ken may need to take up to six weeks off work to recover and will need surgery if his bones don’t heal properly.

According to Ken, he had been cycling from Netley to Hound along Hound Way when the car reportedly cut him off to turn into Woolston Road.

Ken claims the driver then sped away from the scene without stopping.

However, two people helped the cyclist by bandaging him up and then one of them taking him home.

He said: “I slapped into the car and there was a big bang. I put out my right arm to stop the fall but I fell on to the road.

“My shoulder was dislocated and I was in A&E for six hours.

“I have broken my upper arm and have a lot of swelling and bruises.

“I was in shock. I was very lucky not to have gone over the bonnet.

“I am appealing to anyone who saw the driver. I just want someone to hold their hand up so I can sort out my injuries and the damage to my bike.

“I would like to thank the people that stopped to help me because I don’t know how I would get home without them.

“I would also like to thank the amazing staff at the hospital who were so caring and smiley.”

A police spokesperson said: “The red hatchback was driven by a white man thought to be in his early 20s with dark short hair.

“We’d ask that anyone who witnessed the crash or knows anything about the incident gets in contact with us on 101 quoting 44200091167.”
