Police in Derry are appealing for information after a teenage girl was knocked off her bike in a hit and run collision that occurred on Friday evening last.

The road traffic collision occurred on the Main Street area in Eglinton.

Police have said that just after 6.45pm, a 14-year-old girl was knocked off her bike by a car.

A PSNI spokesperson said the car is believed to have been a black BMW with tinted windows and was driven by a man.

The girl received a scrape to her leg as a result of the incident but did not require medical attention.
