Merseyside Police rushed to the scene around 6pm today following reports of an electric bicycle accident.

The suspect had fled the scene while the young girl was taken to hospital with a head injury and is currently in serious but stable condition.

A police investigation is ongoing and video surveillance and witness interviews are being conducted in the area.

The police blocked the road in both directions after the accident, so that no vehicles could enter or exit.

They have also asked for witnesses while warning of the dangers of off-road bikes.

Chief Inspector Jay Crellin said: “I would approach anyone who was traveling in the Newsham Park area towards Muirhead Avenue and thinks they have caught something on their dashcam, anyone who witnessed the collision or who believes the bike was in the Tuebrook area to contact us.

“Off-road bikes, especially when ridden anti-socially, can injure both the rider and other people and must not be ridden on roads and sidewalks.

“I would urge people to think carefully before buying such machines.”

Police have released images of a man they want to speak to in connection with the incident because they believe he may have important information.

Chief Inspector Crellin said: “I would also like to request that the man pictured come forward as we believe he has information which is vital to our investigation.”
