Another crash has happened on what many consider to be one of Swindon's most dangerous roads. 

Police were called to a crash on Ermin Street in Stratton after learning a young female had been struck. 

While at the scene police discovered that an electrically-assisted 'bicycle' capable of going speeds of up to 60mph was involved, even though it is not legally allowed on the road. 

The bike, which costs £3,500, was also uninsured, so was seized.

Swindon Advertiser:

Wiltshire Specialist Ops' Twitter page, which posts about the roads policing and armed response teams, tweeted about the incident. 

It said: "Roads policing unit are currently dealing with an RTC on Ermin Street in Swindon. A young female has been struck.

"This 'bicycle' is electrically assisted and capable 60mph. These vehicles can not be used on the road. It costs £3,500 and has now been seized for no insurance."

One person replying to the tweet said: "Hope she's going to be OK, but good job on seizing it.

"Plenty of them & e-scooters around Ermin Street all the time from the various industrial estates.

"The problem is ignorance, people don't know the laws, especially if they don't drive (why would they?) Great work."
