A six-year-old girl escaped with minor injuries after a motorcyclist hit her along a main road before fleeing the scene. 

The girl was walking along Station Road in March at around 3.15pm on Sunday, October 10 before a motorbike came towards her. 

Mother Becky Cowles said: “Luckily her dad pulled her out of the way, otherwise it would have been more than her hand that got hit. 

“I only dread to think what could have happened.” 

Becky said her daughter, who suffered soreness to her hand, was badly shaken by the incident with the motorcyclist, who left immediately afterwards. 

“It’s a road we walk every day to and from school and it's definitely going to have an impact on how safe my daughter now feels walking along there,” said Becky. 

“He had a black helmet and a hoodie on but he didn't seem to have any control over the bike.

A Cambridgeshire police spokesperson said investigations into who the motorcyclist is are ongoing. 

‘Police were called at 3.19pm yesterday (10 October) to a report of a motorbike mounting the pavement and clipping a child in Station Road,” they said. 

“Police attended and spoke with the parent and child who had sustained a slight injury to their hand.”
