  • A cyclist has been left injured following a collision in Stainforth.

  • It's believed the woman was knocked off her bike by a trailer which was being carried by an Isuzu 4x4.

Police are appealing for information after a cyclist was injured in a collision involving an Isuzu 4x4 which did not stop.

The collision occurred at about 1.35pm on Tuesday 12 May 2020 on the B6479 at Sherwood Brow near to Stainforth, north of Settle.

A woman on a bicycle was travelling down the B6479 from Horton-in-Ribblesdale towards Settle when a dark-coloured Isuzu 4x4, with an aluminium hard back, towing a tri-axle cattle trailer, attempted to overtake her despite an on-coming goods vehicle.

The trailer is believed to have hit the cyclist, causing her significant injuries and leaving her in the carriageway. This vehicle left the scene.

A second 4x4 vehicle, a silver Nissan also towing a cattle trailer, was travelling just behind the Isuzu and this vehicle also made no attempt to stop, despite the woman being laid in the road.

North Yorkshire Police are investigating the collision, and are appealing for people to contact them if they know either of the two vehicles, or if they may have been in the area at the time and have information or dash-cam footage.
