Renewed appeal for witnesses to collision involving pedestrian and e-bike

A pedestrian struck by an e-bike off Leicester’s Saffron Lane remains in a serious condition in hospital – and detectives are continuing to appeal for witnesses to come forward.
Officers were called to Broughton Road shortly after 2pm on Tuesday 19 April and on arrival, found that the cyclist had left the scene.
Last week a 26-year-old man from Leicester was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and later released under investigation.
The pedestrian – a man in his 30s – remains hospital in a serious but stable condition. The e-bike has not been recovered.
Detective Constable Emma Neeves, from the force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “While a man was arrested in connection with the incident last week, he was later released and our investigation is very much continuing.
“We know that people were in the area at the time – some of who stopped to help both the pedestrian and the cyclist. However, I believe there are some witnesses who have not yet spoken to us.
“The pedestrian is still seriously ill in hospital and we need to establish exactly what happened. It’s never too late to come forward and if you were in the area and saw what happened – or have any footage of the collision – then please get in touch.
“We are also still trying to locate the e-bike involved in the collision and would ask anyone who knows of its whereabouts to let us know.”
