Witness appeal after cyclist injured in collision on the A27 near Chichester
Police are appealing for witnesses after a cyclist was hurt in a collision with a car while riding on the A27 near Chichester.
Two cyclists were travelling on the eastbound carriageway at Hambrook at around 6pm on Thursday (August 12) when one of them was involved in a collision with a blue SsangYong car.
The injured cyclist, a 22-year-old man, suffered a suspected fracture and was treated at St Richard's Hospital, Chichester. The driver of the Ssangyong was not injured.
Police are keen to speak to anyone that may have witnessed the incident or have dash cam footage from the area at the time.
Anyone with information is asked to report it online or call 101 quoting serial 657 of 18/07.

Man declared “it’s Ricky time” before violent attack
A prolific offender who declared “it’s Ricky time”, before violently attacking a man at a park has been jailed for nine years.
Ricky Jeans, 37, unemployed, of Westgate, Chichester, has been convicted of two crimes he committed within five days of each other.
Around 6.35pm on 19 September 2020, a man and a woman were chatting on a bench in Hotham Park, Bognor Regis, when they were approached by Jeans, who stated he was in the area to purchase drugs.
Following a brief conversation, the defendant became aggressive and the two friends attempted to leave. At this point, Jeans pushed the man back onto the bench.
The man, aged 22, got up again and tried to fend off Jeans, who then looked at his watch and declared “it’s Ricky time”.
He then tripped the man to the ground and carried out a sustained attack, causing him head and facial injuries which required hospital treatment.
Jeans demanded the friends’ personal belongings, but they were able to get away and call police.
