Cyclist seeking Good Samaritans who helped him after crash

by CyclingTips

A cyclist who was struck by a vehicle is hoping to find the two Good Samaritans who pulled over to help him after the incident. Phil Craven said after the crash that two women stopped to check on him, but that he was unable to get their information at the time.

“They took the time to check I was alright, rang for the emergency services, offered me a seat in the car, and gave me a blanket to keep warm,” he said.

“Their care and attention was very much appreciated – especially as this was rush hour; and they must have made themselves late to their own destination.

The driver of the car also stopped and Craven was able to exchange information with him. He later texted the driver that he was okay, but also wants to contact the two women to thank them for their kindness.

“I think myself lucky that there are people such as this in our community.”
