Crash investigators are appealing for public assistance and dashcam vision after a cyclist was hit by a truck on the Far North Coast yesterday.

Just after 6am (Monday, 8 February), emergency services were called to Tweed Valley Way at Condong, following reports a white Mitsubishi table top truck and a cyclist – both travelling south – collided.

The cyclist, a 43-year-old man, was thrown from his bike. He sustained head injuries, fractures to his leg and collarbone, and other internal injuries.

He was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital.

The driver, a 56-year-old man, was uninjured. He was also taken to hospital for mandatory testing.

Investigators from the Crash Investigation Unit attended and forensically examined the scene.

As inquiries into the circumstances surrounding the crash continue, investigators are seeking public assistance and anyone who may have dashcam vision from Tweed Valley Way, near the intersection of Colonial Drive, to come forward.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report information via NSW Police social media pages.
