Officers are appealing for information, dash cam footage and witnesses following a bicycle and scooter collision in Watford, after a six-year-old boy sustained an open fracture to his leg and was taken to hospital by ambulance.
The incident happened yesterday (Thursday May 14) in Dalton Way.
At around 3:10pm, a child on a scooter was travelling down the ramp outside Pets At Home.
Two males, both on bikes, approached and the three were involved in a collision.
Sergeant Russell Jones, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, said: “This was understandably a frightening incident for the child and my best wishes are with him as he recovers. We are still investigating the circumstances of the collision and I am appealing for anyone who saw what happened to get in touch. Did you see the events leading up to the collision?
“Any information you have, no matter how small it might seem, could be vital in helping us to understand the circumstances of the incident. I would also like to hear from anyone who caught what happened on dash cam footage.
“If you can help, please call the non-emergency number 101 or email me at email@example.com ISR 94 of 15 May.”
If a crime is in progress or someone’s life is in danger, call 999 immediately.
