An image has been released of a van detectives want to trace the driver of in connection with a hit and run collision which left a cyclist fighting for his life.

The driver of a car failed to stop after colliding with the 47-year-old cyclist at the junction of Royal College Street and Camden Road, opposite Camden Road overground station, on January 10.

Police joined paramedics at the scene at about 11.35pm before the man was rushed to an east London hospital where he remains in a critical condition, according to the Met.

Moments after the collision, the driver of the car turned into Plender Street from the wrong direction before almost colliding with a black cab which was forced to take a sharp turn to avoid a crash.

The cab then turned right into Bayham Street, Camden Town.

The car believed to have been involved in the collision was found nearby in Kings Terrace, Camden Town.

Officers are appealing for the driver of another vehicle - a large SUV, possibly a Mercedes Vito Taxi - to come forward believing he or she may have information that could help with the inquiry. They believe the driver may have vital information.

If you witnessed the collision or have information about the vehicle involved, the vehicle pictured or anything that may assist the investigation, call the Met on 020 8991 9555.
