John Molloy, Welling, London, September 2012

John was hit by a car driver who turned right across his path whilst travelling in the opposite direction. John was thrown over his bicycle’s handlebars and landed on his shoulder.

John’s collar bone was broken, scaphoid bone in wrist was damaged and shoulder blade was bruised. John now has constant problems with his wrist and had to have a metal plate inserted in his shoulder. He can no longer cycle and has to have on-going physiotherapy on his wrist.

The police did not collect witness details and therefore could not follow up those witnesses to collect statements. The police decided to take no further action because there was not sufficient evidence for a prosecution. The police have failed to produce the incident report despite John’s solicitor requesting and paying for it.
