UK Hit-And-Run Mom Tells Cyclist “Gotta Go…Kids Are Late for School”

Some people are amazingly selfish and self-focused. A recent case of a UK mother hitting a cyclist and then leaving the scene after telling him her kids are late for school may, however, take the cake.

How a person can hit a cyclist with a car, knocking him down and bloodying his face with injuries, get out and look him over, and then just drive off is simply beyond me.

The victim, Taron Stead, a 17-year-old who had just bought a new mountain bike after starting an IT apprenticeship this summer, was struck on Crookes Valley Road, Sheffield, last week. The accident left the boy with multiple bruises and blood streaming down his face.

The driver of the car stopped, and a woman got out of the passenger seat, as reported by Stead’s mom Naomi Pickard. The woman looked him over as he was trying to get to his feet, told him her kids were upset by the incident, and that they were late for school. She then hopped back in the car and drove off without giving any information, according to the Sheffield Star.

Sheffield University law school staff called paramedics who helped the injured boy. When word of the story got out, a local Halfords bike repair shop offered to repair his bike for free.

Note that police are appealing for witnesses to the collision to contact them.
