Default RLJ cyclist hospitalises 81 year old and scarpers

Audrey has been left with a number of injures, including minor fractures
around her left eye socket, a fractured left cheek, a cut on her
forehead, concussion and a bleed to the brain.
Sue says all her siblings are shocked and they can't understand why
anyone would ride off.
"The police told us she did nothing wrong, the light went green for her
to cross. I can't understand why anyone would do this and then ride off."

Put into perspective, there are over 2.4 million cyclists who cycle

at least 3 times week.

What is the connection between that "statistic" (whatever its status)
and this shocking incident?

A helmet would help.

Why did the Police at the scene not detain the cyclist?

To add another perspective, 100 pedestrians *a day* are hit by motor
vehicles.

As they say, a million is a statistic, one is a tragedy.

If the Police were not on scene how do they know this?

Because the lump of **** on the silly bicycle had ****ed off, that is what
cowardly cyclists do. But you knew that anyway, didn't you, **** for brains.

You didn't need to. Even with English being something you struggle with,
the title of the book ("Basic English") was clear enough within the URL.

Have you asked them?
