If you were the driver (in Fairford, Gloucestershire) who put the mother of my children in hospital yesterday and decided not stop, please PM me. I'd love to talk.

 

....you fucking twat.

What happened 210bpm, was she out on a run or what?  

Bloody hell, I really hope she will be okay.  Are the police involved?

So sorry to hear that. Hope she will be ok!
Cross my fingers you find the one who did this!!! Can't believe the driver did not stop.

Unfortunately this happens far too often, even more unfortunately the Police seem unable to do anything about it and in the unlikely event of the offender being caught they only get a small fine.

I do not know what it is about hot weather that makes people behave like idiots on the road but there have been a lot of serious local incidents recently.

I can't believe that a triathlete would put the mother of your children in hospital without stopping. No excuse for swearing mind

Maybe someone objected to beng told to stick their medals up their arse last night

Why not? A cyclist hit my then pregnant wife on a zebra crossing once. These days I teach my toddlers to 'wait for the green man' when crossing only to find cyclists disregarding traffic lights totally and then getting aggressive when you ask them what they are playing at.

210- Sorry to hear of your wife's injury.  Angry to hear the bastard drove off.  That is despicable.  In that situation, someone could be badly hurt, but by stopping and calling for help, death or permanent injury avoided.... but because they fukced off, help wasn't received in time.

No matter what excuses, I would want to see a jail sentence for this

The driver that is, not your wife 

 

Little bit of humour, to lighten the situation

It wasn't his wife.

Ah yes, I made an assumption there.  Thanks for picking me up on that important detail.

Apparently some triathlete with an i-pod has been targetting mothers and then pregnant people forr hit and run attacks, Nick. 

28/07/2014 at 13:19
Any details of the car etc? Have the police been informed?

Give them a fair trial and then hang them, alternatively just string a few up to teach the rest a lesson.... er..... but not me of course...... or my mates.

But from bitter experience the Police do not care....

My wife once grabbed the person in front of her to stop them walking in front of a car that could not be bothered to stop at a pelican crossing; right outside a Police station... They went into the Police station with the registration number to be told that, "it is not worth doing anything unless the incident is witnessed by a Police officer".

Great.... (I could go on, but you get the idea)

Philomena, really?? 

Is there any info on this thing masquerading as a triathlete, in the papers etc?

28/07/2014 at 14:28

Not unless it has 3 legs ?

From witness statements, he (or she) is either tall or short, white, but may be dark skinned. No distinguishing features, but may have a large scar on their left (or right) cheek. Lightly built, but quite plump. They were wearing a light coloured top, that may have been dark blue. Police say they are looking for a very distinctive looking person who does not tend to stand out in a crowd.

Anyone seeing them should write to their local Police station, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope...

But, as someone who has been a victim of a hit and run I would be interested in what happened, her injuries and whether the Police could care less?

If the Police cannot be bothered to investigate then try putting up some signs near where the incident happened. Write to your local paper, your MP and your Police commissioner to generate interest.

Hopefully the offender will get caught but this country regards road deaths and injuries as pretty trivial. Like £70 for causing death by careless driving trivial.

This is a timely thread. I had to stop for an accdent yesterday, when the car infront of me knocked down a cyclist. I was somewhat gobsmacked by the attitude of the driver. when I spoke to her she told me that she hadn't done anything wrong and didn't even get out of her car to check on the guy. It was definitely her fault. Unbelievable!
