Biker pictured in Thornbury hit-run search
9:00am Wednesday 9th October 2013 in News
Police have released a CCTV image of a motorcycle in a bid to trace a hit and run rider who left a pedestrian with serious head injuries.
The victim, a 58-year-old man, also suffered badly broken legs in the accident and is still in hospital nearly two weeks later.
Now police have released an image of a motorcycle they wish to trace. It shows the bike travelling towards Leeds along Leeds Road, Thornbury, Bradford, at 10.44pm on September 27, around 15 minutes before the collision.
The rider is wearing black leathers and what looks like a black and yellow rucksack or jacket. The motorcycle was black and a sports style – similar to a Suzuki Bandit.
PC Craig Ward, who is investigating the incident, said he hoped the image might bring new information.
Ring him on 101 or by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
The victim remains in hospital in a stable condition.
