"A cyclist has been seriously injured following a hit and run in
Ringwood this afternoon.
The rider, 45, was hit by a car on the Mount Dandenong Road, near
Federal Street, just before 2pm, a police spokeswoman said.
Police later found the vehicle, believed to have been involved in the
smash, burnt out at the rear of a pub carpark.
The silver Daewoo sedan was found torched at the rear of a pub
overlooking Ringwood Lake off Mount Dandenong Road."
We saw this on the TV news last night. The burned car had the front
edge of the roof dented in. Coupled with the crumpled back wheel of the
bike, it looks to me like the driver hit him from behind and the rider
went over the top of the car. No news of his condition since.
