A cyclist had to have “extensive surgery” after being hit by someone after colliding with a child.

The unnamed man collided with a young girl walking across a crosswalk at 11 a.m. on May 13.

The child is believed not to have sustained any injuries after the crash on Lauriston Road in Hackney, east London.

Immediately afterwards, a man approached the cyclist and punched him in the face before leaving the scene.

It is not believed that this man was known to the child.

A friend took the cyclist to the hospital, where it was determined he had a broken jaw and required surgery.

The police are now investigating and are appealing to all drivers who may have been in the area at the time to report dashcam footage.

Earlier in the year, cyclist Ian Davies, 41, suffered a broken collarbone and three fractured ribs after plowing into a wire stretched across a popular path.

It happened while he was cycling off the Chester Millennium Greenway along the England-Wales border on February 21.

After somersaulting over the handlebars of his bike, he woke up with a concussion, abrasions, a broken collarbone and three fractured ribs.

A wire trap about waist-high was discovered nearby, wrapped around a post and fence on either side of the track.

The trap is believed to have been specifically designed to capture the handlebars of an adult bike like Ian’s that was traveling at around 20 mph.

Similar wire traps were discovered in Kent in 2020, where waist-high barbed wire was stretched across a public path.

While a cyclist in South Wales was yanked from his bike and left injured when he collided with a barbed wire booby trap placed at head level.
