A cyclist was injured in a collision at a busy York junction – and no one stopped to help her.

The incident happened on the junction between Lord Mayor’s Walk, Gillygate and Clarence Street at around 5.50pm on Friday (May 26).

It involved a bicycle and a four-wheel drive, possibly in blue, which did not stop at the scene or report the incident to the police.

Police believe that the cyclist’s rear wheel was clipped by the vehicle while she was cycling away from traffic lights on Gillygate and travelling onto Clarence Street.

The cyclist fell, sustaining injuries to her arms and face.

A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Unfortunately no members of the public stopped at the time to assist, or provide information to the cyclist or attending police officer.”

Officers are appealing for witnesses. Anyone with information that could help should contact them on the numbers below.
