Officers are appealing for witnesses to come forward following a fail-to-stop collision in Weymouth.

At 4pm on Tuesday 29 January 2019 a collision occurred on Queen Street involving a Sym Jet4 moped and an unknown 4x4.

The moped was travelling along Queen Street toward King Street when the rider was knocked off by a car, described as a green Mitsubishi Shogun. The driver of the car reversed, drove around the rider, continued along Stanley Street and turned right into Crescent Street.

“I am also keen to hear from anyone who has seen a green Mitsubishi Shogun or similar that has recently sustained damage in unusual circumstances.”
