West Yorkshire Police have made a renewed appeal for assistance in an ongoing investigation following an incident involving a pedestrian and multiple off-road bikes within a Wakefield park.
The authorities are actively looking into the case, which transpired on the 15th of July at approximately 3:10 PM in Wrenthorpe Park. During the incident, a 62-year-old gentleman suffered severe injuries after being struck by an off-road bike. The incident took place on the park’s side adjacent to Lombardy Garth, heading in the direction of Hornbeam Avenue.
At the time of the incident, a cluster of four to five off-road bikes were collectively navigating the park’s terrain. In an effort to progress the investigation, law enforcement officials have released a photograph of a bike that may have been among the group. They are eager to identify the rider associated with this particular bike.
Based on preliminary observations, it is suspected that the rider involved in the collision might have fallen from the bike, potentially sustaining injuries before departing from the scene. The pedestrian, aged 62, was promptly transported to a medical facility due to the gravity of his injuries, although the injuries are not deemed life-threatening.
Authorities are particularly interested in locating the rider of the bike in question, or anyone who can provide pertinent details regarding their identity. Additionally, individuals possessing information or relevant CCTV footage related to the incident are encouraged to come forward. This assistance can be channelled to Safer Roads and Neighbourhood Support Team Two.
