Police investigation launched after Gosport collision

HAMPSHIRE CONSTABULARY have announced they have launched an “urgent” appeal for witnesses and information to assist their continuing investigation following a road traffic collision that took place close to Gosport Town Centre last weekend; which left a male cyclist in his sixties requiring medical treatment for “serious but not life threatening” injuries.

Emergency services were called at approximately 10.30am on April 20 (Saturday) to reports of this collision occuring at the junction of Stoke Road and Willis Road. This involved a beige-coloured Nissan Quashqai car and a cyclist who was taken to hospital; whilst ‘preliminary’ investigations were undertaken at the scene before traffic returned back to normal.

Investigators believe there was a number of potential witnesses who were walking / driving along this surrounding area and may have seen either of the vehicles involved; including both before and within the aftermath of this collision. They are also keen to speak with anybody who has Dash Cam or CCTV footage taken that could assist with these enquiries.

Detectives are asking for anybody with information or can help to contact police by calling their non-emergency number 101 and quote the case’s reference number of 44240165406. They can further submit details using the online reporting tool available on the Hampshire Police website, with all official support and further guidance available on the links here.

Alternatively, readers can contact the “independent charity” Crimestoppers 100% anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 for absolutely free; or via their anonymous online forms which can be found through their website:
