9:10am Tuesday 1st October 2013 in News
Police are still appealing for a motorcyclist to come forward after a 58-year-old man was hit by a motorbike last Friday night leaving him with two broken legs.
The pedestrian, who was taken to Leeds General Infirmary, after the collision at around 10.40pm on Leeds Road, Thornbury, was yesterday described as being in a stable condition.
The motorcyclist immediately rode off from the area and police want to speak to the rider before they are indentified by an investigation. Officers are examining CCTV from the area and are asking for any witnesses to get in contact with PC 1581 Craig Ward at the Western Area Roads Policing Unit via 101 or by calling Crimetoppers, anonymously and in confidence on 0800 555 111.
The motorcycle was black and was similar to a Suzuki Bandit. The rider was wearing black leathers and a black helmet.
