Appeal for witnesses to fail to stop road traffic collision

We are appealing for witnesses to a fail to stop road traffic collision in Reading.

Between 9.30pm and 10pm on Saturday (23/3), a teenage boy was cycling along Oxford Road between the junctions of Valentia Road and Beresford Road.

He was involved in a collision with a car and sustained serious injuries to his face.

The driver of the car did not stop at the scene.

The boy was taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital, where he remains at this time.

Investigating officer PC Martin Danks, of the Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit, said: “I am appealing for any witnesses to this collision to please come forward.

“Also, if you were driving in the area around the time of the collision and have a dash-cam, or if you live nearby and have a CCTV camera or a video doorbell, I’d also ask that you check any recordings in case it has captured something that could assist us and get in touch if you have.

“To contact us, call 101 or make a report on our website, quoting reference number 43240135657.

“Alternatively, you can provide information anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111 or via its website.”
