OAP knocked off bike in hit-and-run near Moonzie

A pensioner has been treated in hospital after he was knocked off his bike in a hit-and-run.

The incident happened on the A92 near Moonzie, Fife, at about 23:10 on Saturday.

Police said the 79-year-old cyclist was knocked off his bike by a passing car that failed to stop.

Local residents came to the man's aid before he was taken to Ninewells Hospital for treatment. His injuries are not thought to be serious.

Police believe the driver may not have been aware of the crash due to the time of night.

Sgt James Henry said: "As part of this investigation we are eager to trace the driver of the vehicle, who, given the time of night, may not know they struck a cyclist, but may notice some damage to their vehicle which is consistent with a collision.

"If you were on the A92 near Moonzie late on Saturday evening and believe you were this motorist then please contact us immediately.

"In addition, anyone else who has information that can assist with this inquiry should also get in touch."
