Beth Evans, 31, was on her way to her way to work when she was in collision with a silver grey car on the roundabout at Orchard Way and Plaistow Lane, Bromley.

The trainee teacher, from Sydenham Avenue, Sydenham, was taken by ambulance to the Princess Royal University Hospital, in Farnborough, where an x-ray showed that she had a broken ankle and an injured wrist.

Although the female driver of the car initially stopped and spoke to paramedics on the scene, she drove off before police arrived, failing to leave her details.

Ms Evans, who was on her way to her new post at Coopers Technology College, in Chislehurst, when she was hit at 7.20am on September 21, said: “I was crossing the roundabout on my bike when a car came from my left and knocked me off. I was wearing a high visibility jacket and lights and it was a bright day.”

An off-duty paramedic was one of the first to the scene to help treat the cyclist in the middle of the road and another passer by who helped Ms Evans said that the car which hit her was a silver Toyota Yaris type car.

Ms Evans says she had make own signs appealing for witnesses to the incident. 
She said: “The longer that it is left the more people will forget the details.”

A spokesman for Bromley police said: “When we arrived the car driver had left the scene. Officers searched for the vehicle but to no avail. They attended the hospital to check on the victim and were advised she had ‘minor injuries’. The incident report states that Beth’s mother confirmed that it was a fractured ankle.”

Contact the police on 020 7230 0565.
