A woman suffered serious head injuries when she was hit by a moped along a cycle path on Friday evening.
The collision happened on the cycle path which passes under Lonsdale Road, at the junction with Fairlands Way, Stevenage, at 8.15pm.
Two pedestrians were walking away from the town centre at the time, when a dark coloured moped displaying L plates came up behind them.
The driver, who was carrying a passenger, sounded the horn before colliding with the 46 year old woman. The bike then stalled before it was ridden off in the same direction it had been heading.
The victim was taken to Lister Hospital where she remains in a stable condition. The other pedestrian was not hurt.

PC Leon Bennett from the roads policing unit said: “Mopeds should not be ridden on cycle paths designed for pedestrians and bicycles. I’d appeal for the rider or passenger to come forward so we can establish exactly what happened.
“I would also appeal to anyone who was in the area that night and saw what happened, or saw a scooter in the area prior to or following the incident to contact me with information. I am also keen to hear from anyone who may know who the bike belongs too.”
