Mum shares chilling photo of son left unconscious on road

A mum has urgently appealed for witnesses after a hit-and-run driver knocked her son off his bike and ‘left him unconscious in the road’.

Dylan Hinson was making his way home from work at a factory when he was struck down by a ‘speeding’ white car along Redhill Road, Northfield last month.

The 23-year-old was knocked out as the motorist reportedly fled the scene, driving off towards Rednal Road.

He suffered potentially serious injuries and was taken by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital – where he spent four nights recovering.

The incident took place at 11.25pm on Friday, August 20, but one month on and no arrests have yet been made.

Mum Melissa Hinson shared the dramatic image of her son in hospital in the aftermath in the hope someone might come forward.

Amid a continued appeal for information, she said: “My son was cycling home from work, he was coming down Redhill Road and was hit by a speeding white car, the w***** of a driver left him unconscious in the road and just drove off down Redhill Road towards Rednal Road.

“If anyone saw anything or lives on Redhill Road and has any CCTV footage please get in touch.

“Unfortunately I have no new information on the driver so please keep sharing because somebody out there knows who did this to my boy and if you do then I urge you to come forward and I promise all information you give me will be kept confidential just imagine if it was your family member.”

West Midlands Ambulance Service confirmed it sent two ambulances to the scene of a crash involving a car and cyclist at the time.

A spokeswoman said: “We were called at 11:25pm on the 20 th August to reports of an RTC involving a car and cyclist on Redhill Road, Northfield. We sent two ambulances to the scene.

“We treated the cyclist, a man, for potentially serious injuries and he was conveyed to Queen Elizabeth Hospital for further treatment.”

West Midlands Police vowed to look into new evidence that comes to light as it added there was “sadly” no CCTV footage of the incident.

A spokeswoman for the force said: “Sadly there is no CCTV of the incident or any further lines of enquiry that we can pursue.

“If any further evidence comes to light, we will, of course, look into it.”

If anyone has information on the collision, they should contact West Midlands Police via 101, Live Chat on the website or alternatively, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
