POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a teenager was knocked off his bike by a HGV in Heysham.

The 18-year-old was cycling from Morecambe towards Heysham along the A589 Heysham Road when he was clipped by the HGV at the junction of Seymore Grove at around 7.30am today (June 29).

The HGV didn’t stop and the teenager, who is from Heysham, fell from his bike suffering a number cuts and bruises. He was treated at Royal Lancaster Infirmary.

PC Shaun Canning of The Road Policing Unit said: “I would appeal to anybody who may have witnessed this incident to contact police.

“The HGV failed to stop at the scene but it may well be that the driver didn’t realise he had collided with the cyclist. I would urge the driver to come forward.”

Anybody with any information is asked to contact police on 08451 25 35 45 quoting log number 0223 of June 29.
