Police have appealed for witnesses after a cyclist was seriously injured in a crash earlier this week in Hatfield.

A white Toyota Auris was involved in the collision with a female cyclist at around 4.25pm on Tuesday, April 3, near the roundabout on Comet Way.

The cyclist, who is in her 30s, was seriously injured.

A rapid response vehicle and an ambulance attended and took her to Lister hospital, where she is still recovering.

Police have today (Friday, April 6) appealed for information, footage and for possible witnesses to come forward.

PC Stewart Robertson from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, said: “The collision happened in a busy location so there is a good chance that many people would have witnessed it.

“I am appealing for anyone who saw the collision, or the events leading up to it, to get in touch.

“Similarly, I would like to hear from anyone who might have captured the incident on their dash cam.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the BCH Road Policing Unit via the non-emergency number 101, quoting ISR 549 of April 3. You can also report information online at www.herts.police.uk/Report.
