Dog walker hit by off-road motorbike and left unconscious in the road – image released

Police investigating an alleged hit-and-run collision that left a dog walker unconscious in the road have released an image of a motorbike and rider they would like to speak to.

A man aged in his forties was crossing the road in Elder Street, Skegby when he was hit by an off-road bike travelling on the wrong side of the road.

The rider fell from the motorbike but immediately got back on and fled the scene, leaving his victim unconscious on the road with a broken leg, a fractured eye socket, and a cut to his arm.

Officers have checked through hours of CCTV footage from the area at the time and would like to speak to a person seen riding an orange-coloured motorbike – believed to be a KTM.

The rider wore a distinctive yellow helmet, a grey tracksuit, and a dark-coloured back brace.

Inspector Jon Hewitt, district commander for Ashfield, said:

“This was a shocking incident made all the worse by the callous actions of the rider, who ploughed into a pedestrian before leaving him slumped in the street.

“We are determined to catch up with the person responsible and are releasing these images to help jog people’s memories.

“We would particularly like to appeal to anyone who knows who this person is.

“They may be friends or even family members, and may already be aware that a collision of some kind took place. I want them to know just how serious this incident was and urge them to do the right thing by coming forward.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident 650 or 30 July 2023. They can also contact Crimestoppers in confidence on 0800 555 111.
