A teenage girl from Peterborough was knocked off her bike as she cycled to school in a hit and run incident.

The victim, a 15-year-old girl from Paston, was cycling on the pavement outside The Harrier pub in Gunthorpe Road at about 8.25am on March 12 and crossing the entrance to the pub’s carpark when she was hit by a car.

Thankfully the girl was not seriously injured, although she did go to hospital with minor injuries to her leg

The car, described as a red Ford KA, turned straight into the carpark entrance, hitting the girl causing her to come off her bike, onto the car bonnet and onto the floor.

The car initially stopped and a woman, described as white, in her 40s with shoulder length brown/blonde hair, got out from the passenger side.

The victim told police the woman then said to her ‘it was 50/50, we were both at fault’ before getting back in the car and leaving the scene.

PC Stewart Ward said: “Thankfully the girl was not seriously injured, although she did go to hospital with minor injuries to her leg.

“This was a really frightening ordeal for the victim and I urge anyone with information to contact police.”

Anyone with information should call PC Ward on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
