Officers investigating a collision on the A511 Between Ashby and Swadlincote are asking for dash cam footage which may have captured the incident.
At around 11.45am on Thursday 25 January a motorcyclist was approaching the roundabout at Boundary when he was reportedly undertaken by a red car who swerved in front of him and braked sharply, causing him to swerve into the inside lane.
The red car then collided with the motorbike, at the exit for Boundary, causing the motorcyclist to fall off his bike onto the grass verge.
The driver of the car got out and punched the motorcyclist to the head, resulting in a black eye and broken nose.
It’s understood that there were a number of other vehicles in the area at the time, including several belonging to a funeral procession, so anyone travelling nearby who witnessed the incident is asked to get in touch quoting reference 24*50682.
