The incident happened between 5-5.10pm yesterday on the B1066 and involved an ‘older-style’ silver Vauxhall Corsa, which collided with the rear wheel of a ‘giant’ bicycle.

The rider’s foot was clipped into the pedal and the bike got caught up under the car and he was dragged along the road before he managed to free himself.

The car carried on moving with the bike underneath before eventually stopping. It was then reversed to free the bike and carried on driving along – police say no attempt was made by the driver to stop.

The cyclist suffered severe grazing to his hands, forearms and buttocks and was taken to West Suffolk Hospital for treatment. The bike was badly damaged.

The driver of the car is described as a white man in his late 40s, of stocky build, with short, light-coloured/greying hair and was wearing a light blue shirt.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information should call Pc Hylton Garrick at the Bury St Edmunds Roads Policing and Firearms Operations Unit on 101.
