Police continue to appeal for witnesses after a collision in Loughborough which left a Leicestershire Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) seriously injured.
Detectives from the force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) are carrying out an investigation following the incident, which occurred on the A6 Leicester Road at around 8.20pm on Monday (4 October).
The collision involved a black Kia Carens and the PCSO, who was cycling while on duty. Both were travelling towards Loughborough town centre. The collision occurred close to the junction with Gregory Street.
Officers attended and the PCSO was subsequently taken to hospital where she remains in a serious but stable condition.
A 40-year-old man from Loughborough was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and driving while under the influence of drugs and has been released under investigation.
Our investigation is still very much ongoing and we would like to continue to ask anyone who may have witnessed the collision or the events leading up to it – and hasn’t as yet spoken to police – to please get in touch.
Also anyone travelling along Leicester Road – either towards or from Loughborough town centre – who has a dashcam in their vehicle is also encouraged to make contact with us.
