Teenage cyclist left fighting for his life in hospital after hit-and-run

Police are appealing for any information about the collision or the vehicle or driver involved.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]A teenager is critically ill in hospital after he was struck by a vehicle last night on Brantingham Road in Elloughton, East Yorkshire.

The vehicle involved in the collision failed to stop at the scene – which is about 200 metres east of Outgang Road – and currently the identity of both the driver and the vehicle is unknown.

The 16-year-old Elloughton boy was heading east on a black bicycle at approximately 11.15pm, when it is believed a vehicle, travelling in the same direction, struck him from behind and knocked him to the ground.

The vehicle did not remain and a member of the public found the boy laying injured in the road and called the emergency services.

The injured boy is currently in Hull Royal Infirmary where he is in a very poorly condition with life threatening injuries.

Sgt Claire Hall said: “At this stage we have little detail about the vehicle involved however we do believe it will have sustained some damage, possibly some dents or some smashed glass.

“I am appealing to the driver of the vehicle to come forward, or anyone who has information about the collision or the vehicle or driver involved.

“If you were involved, or you have seen a vehicle that is damaged this morning that might have been caused by a collision, please call 101 quoting log 719 of 7 October.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gmaps link=”#E-8_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”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
