POLICE are appealing for witnesses to come forward following a collision between a car and a 15-year-old girl riding a bicycle outside a high school.

They collided outside Sir William Stanier School’s gates on Coronation Street in Crewe at about 8.30am on Tuesday, March 27.

A Cheshire Police spokesman said the car – a dark blue 4x4 vehicle – was leaving the school’s grounds at the time of the collision.

He said the woman driver did not stop after colliding with the girl on the bicycle and had not reported the incident to the police.

Officers are urging anyone who witnessed the collision or thinks they may know who the driver of the 4x4 car is to get in touch.

PC Peter Kotlar said: “Thankfully the girl only sustained minor injuries and has been discharged from hospital.

“Inquiries into the incident are ongoing, and anyone who saw the collision or has any other information that may help with our investigation should call Cheshire Police on 101, quoting incident 20671, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
