Driver sought after two cyclists knocked down


Police are seeking a motorist who knocked down two women cyclists in Sydney this morning.

Police say the women, both aged 42, were hit from behind while riding south on South Dowling Street near Todman Avenue at Kensington about 6am (AEST) on Sunday.

The male motorist stopped and told the injured pair he would get an ambulance, but didn't return.

Other motorists stopped to help the women, who were treated by paramedics and taken to St Vincent's Hospital.

One suffered soft tissue damage and the other a suspected fractured elbow.

Investigators are looking for a man aged in his mid-50s, possibly of Mediterranean/Middle Eastern appearance, with dark hair and wearing a dark-coloured jumper or vest.

"He was driving a small white car, possibly Corolla-style with four doors," police said.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
