Police are appealing for information from the public after a cyclist was injured by a semi-trailer that failed to stop on the Pacific Motorway at Brunswick Heads last week.

About 8.15am on Friday 2 December 2016, a 62-year-old man was cycling north on the motorway, about a kilometre north of Gulgan Road, when he and the truck collided.

Police from Tweed Byron Local Area Command are appealing for any witnesses to contact Tweed Heads Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
