E-bike rider, 67, injured in hit-and-run

A 67-year-old e-bike rider has sustained serious injuries after being struck by a vehicle in a hit-and-run in Pialba on Saturday.

Queensland Police say their initial information indicates that at around 5.15pm, the e-bike rider was travelling through the roundabout at Beach Road and Boat Harbour Drive, when a small, light-coloured vehicle collided with his bike and a road sign.

“The driver did not stop following the crash, despite the car sustaining damage to the front and right side,” Police said.

Other passing motorists stopped and helped the 67-year-old e-bike rider, who was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Investigators are appealing for the driver to come forward, by attending a local police station.

They’re also asking witnesses and anyone with information or dashcam vision that may assist police with their investigations, to contact police.
