A BOGNOR Regis cyclist has been bailed by police until May 18 after a pensioner suffered a broken hip in a collision.
The 52-year-old male was arrested on suspicion of being drunk in charge of a pedal cycle and grevious bodily harm.
He was released while detectives make further inquiries into the accident with a woman, aged 72, also from Bognor.
It happened in Sudley Road, Bognor, about 2pm on Wednesday, April 4.
A member of the public saw the collision and alerted the emergency services while following the cyclist into nearby Hotham Park and returning him to the scene until the police arrived.
A Sussex Police spokeswoman said: “This was an unfortunate incident for the elderly woman - who has suffered a painful fracture - but, thankfully, remains in a stable condition.
“I would like to thank the member of the public who helped the injured woman and showed great initiative by following the cyclist into a nearby park and persuading him to return to the scene.
“We would like to hear from anyone else who witnessed the incident or saw a man wearing a black jacket and riding a bicycle along Sudley Road shorty before the collision.”
They should call 101 and quote serial 789 of 4/4.
