Hit-and-run victim has bike stolen following crash

Bournemouth Echo: VICTIM: Louis Brown at the spot where the hit-and-run – and theft – took place VICTIM: Louis Brown at the spot where the hit-and-run – and theft – took place

A MAN who was left at the side of the road after a hit-and-run collision later found that his bike had been stolen.

Louis Brown, 25, was cycling down Bath Road in Bournemouth when a car turned across him into Russell Cotes Road.

They collided and Louis was left dazed. To add insult to injury, when he returned to the scene after being treated in hospital, his badly-damaged bike had been stolen.

Louis, a tutor, told the Daily Echo: “The car was on the other side of the road and did a right-hand turn into Russell Cotes Road and that’s when it hit me.

“I had the right of way going down there. I don’t know whether it was a male or female driving. The indicator went on and I thought they had seen me, but then they turned.

“I swerved a little bit, but knew something was going to happen, braced for the impact and went into the side of it.”

Louis, who lives near Bournemouth train station, said he thought the car involved in the collision on Sunday, July 6 was a black Mercedes 4x4.

He added: “I got up and both occupants were out of the car asking me if I was OK.

“I was in shock and dazed. I said to pull up and we would have a chat about my bike, which was badly damaged.

“That’s when they got in their car and left. Another couple, who were walking down the hill, approached me and said they saw what had happened and should they call an ambulance. I said I was OK, but then my mate picked me up and took me to A&E.”

Louis was left badly bruised, with swelling all over his body, and said doctors told him they were surprised he did not suffer worse injuries.

He said: “I went back for my bike about six or seven hours later and it was gone.

“It wasn’t usable, but maybe someone picked it up and sold it for scrap or got the parts from it.”

The incident happened at around 11.05am.

Dorset Police confirmed officers were investigating. Any witnesses should call 101, quoting incident 6:196.

I've noticed that when a report of someone being hit by a car, the anti cycling brigade who always go quiet. If this was a cyclist who had hit and run they'd all be calling for insurance, registration plates etc and pointing out all of the bad things they see.

This car had plates, we'll assume the driver was insured and I guess they weren't on the phone, doing their make up or all the other things that drivers do yet they haven't been found.

I'll also guess they pay 'road tax' as some seem to think actually is a thing.

So the couple who witnessed this accident didn't think to take the registration number or the make and model of the car.
The cyclist asked the car driver to pull up and have a chat about the damage to his bike but the occupants drove off, I hate people who drive away after an accident or damage, that's the reason for insurance but there are many of cases where a cyclist has driven into a car and simply ridden away leaving the driver to foot the bill, doesn't make it right but unfortunately that's what happens these days.
A bike on the side of the road is fair game for anyone these days even just for spare parts damaged or not, perhaps even more for the case of some sort of compulsory insurance.

After his bike hit their car when they turned right, they got out and asked him if he was OK, according to the report, but when he asked them about the damaged bike, they got into the car and drove off. Presume did not want to pay for his bike, as well as for repairs to their car.
