Appeal for Offley hit and run taxi driver

AN APPEAL has been launched to find a taxi driver who ran over a man’s leg after he came off of a moped, causing him serious injuries.

It occurred when a 43-year-old man from Kimpton was dragging himself to the edge of the road after he had collided with a car on the A505 Stopsley towards Hitchin, on the Offley Hill.

A taxi then allegedly ran over the man’s leg and did not stop at the scene. It is believed this vehicle was the cause of the man’s serious leg injuries.

It was originally thought that just two vehicles were involved in the incident, but new information came to light yesterday suggesting otherwise.

Pc Neil Crosier from the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Roads Policing Unit said: “I am very keen to speak with the driver of this taxi or to anyone else who may have seen this occur.

“You may not have realised you had been in collision with the motorcyclist, but if you were in the area at that time I would ask that you contact police as soon as possible. You may recall seeing a moped at the side of the road.”

The incident occurred on Saturday, June 11 at 10.15pm. Anyone with information can call Pc Crosier via the non-emergency number on 0845 33 00 222.
