A man has been arrested following a serious collision involving a tipper lorry in Wigston yesterday (Monday 30 October).
Police were called to the junction of Aylestone Lane and Viking Road shortly after 9.20am and it was reported the driver of the tipper lorry had left the scene prior to emergency services arriving.
The cyclist – a man in his 50s – was taken to hospital with serious injuries and is continuing to receive treatment.
Last night a 35-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of a collision. He has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
Detective Constable Louise Hough, from the force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU), said: “While we’ve spoken to a number of people about the collision, I am still appealing for any witnesses – and particularly any motorists with dashcams who were in the area – to come forward.
“Any details or footage that you’re able to provide, no matter how insignificant you think they are, could help.”
