Appeal for witnesses to Nelson crash

Tasman

Police are appealing for witnesses to a crash in Nelson this afternoon.

Two cyclists were knocked off their bikes by what’s been described as a four-door car at about 2.30pm.

It happened at the intersection of Rutherford St and Van Diemen St.

The car was last seen headed toward Waimea Rd.

The two cyclists – a man and a woman in their 20s – are being taken to hospital with what are understood to be moderate injuries.

Police need the public’s help as the description of the vehicle is limited to being a ‘four-door car’, and we would like to speak to the driver.

If you witnessed this crash, or you were the driver who did not stop, please contact Constable Peter Buzzard on 021 192 0144.

Police would like to thank other motorists and local people who stopped to help the cyclists.
