A motorcyclist has described narrowly escaping being hit in an incident involving a caravan that failed to stop after another biker was left injured.
Eyewitness Carolyn Harris was riding behind the motorcyclist when the crash happened on the A1066 at Bressingham, near Diss, at 12.50pm on Monday, August 26.
She said: "The caravan decided to overtake a car whilst he had a motorbike beside him. This caused the motorbike to brake to avoid being hit and unfortunately come off. It was horrible to witness and being on a bike ourselves we were lucky to avoid her bike travelling into our path."
Police have appealed for information to trace the caravan after its driver failed to stop at the scene. They have also appealed for anyone who may have dash cam footage.
Ms Harris said: "If the driver of the caravan has any morals they'd come forward remembering they overtook a car on that road. Maybe the car might remember being overtaken by such a large caravan.
"If anything good is to come from this it is that the caravan driver at least learns a lesson and uses their mirrors and looks in their blind spot in future."
