An elderly cyclist was knocked unconscious in Glossop earlier this week.

Between 8.40am and 9am on Monday, February 6, a 79-year-old man was riding his bike towards the traffic lights on Dinting Vale, known locally as ‘the plough’.

It is believed a silver car clipped the cyclist, causing him to fall into the road and knocking him unconscious. The cyclist also suffered bruising to his face, back and knee.

The driver failed to stop and has not reported the collision since.

Police are appealing to the several people who went to help the cyclist on Monday, and also anyone who knows of a silver car with damage to the passenger wing mirror, to get in touch.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact PC Jonathan Owen on 101, quoting occurrence number 17000054492, send him a message online here or call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
