carl, wondering if you have seen this.

Cyclist injured – Police seeking truck driver

Police hope the public can help them find the driver of a truck involved in a crash that injured a cyclist at Ovingham.

A white truck and a cyclist collided at the intersection of Hawker St, Park Tce and War Memorial Drive about 9.30am on Wednesday 3 August.

It is believed the truck stopped and the driver had a short conversation with the cyclist.

The truck was towing a trailer with what appeared to be a wheelbarrow attached vertically to the back.

Anyone with information should contact BankSA Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
