A 12-year-old girl was rushed to the hospital’s Emergency Department after she was struck by a man riding an electric pedal cycle on Clyde Best Lane in Sandys on Wednesday.

Police say the accident occurred around 5:25pm near the junction with Cricket Lane.

A spokesman said: “Both the 12-year-old girl and the male cyclist – believed to be in his 30s – were injured.”

But the man who was riding the cycle left the scene “with the assistance of another male on a motorcycle, leaving the electric pedal cycle behind”.

However, a third male is said to have arrived a short time later and removed the electric pedal cycle involved in the collision, fleeing the scene on foot towards the former Arnold’s Supermarket,” the spokesman said.

The girl was treated for her injuries, which are not thought to be life threatening.

The scene was processed and inquiries continue.

Any witnesses that have not already come forward are encouraged to call the main police telephone number 295-0011 as soon as possible.”
