Swindon Police are appealing for witnesses after a vehicle failed to stop after hitting a man off his e-scooter in the town.

Between approximately 2.50pm - 3.05pm on 9 September, a 20-year-old man wearing orange high visibility clothing was riding an e-scooter along Swindon Road from the Dockle Farmhouse area towards Greenbridge.

As he approached the junction of Stratton Road, the man was hit by a vehicle, which caused him to fall from the e-scooter, lose consciousness and sustain injuries to his face and arms.

The driver of the vehicle involved did not stop and did not report the collision.

A spokesperson from Swindon Police said: "We’d like to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or who may have dash cam footage. If you can help, call 101 and quote crime reference number 54220095282."

Alternatively, members of the public can call CrimeStoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
