An e-bike rider has been injured after being struck by a vehicle, with the driver failing to remain at the scene of the incident in Pialba on Saturday, December 16.

Initial information suggests around 5.15pm the e-bike rider was travelling through the roundabout at Beach Road and Boat Harbour Drive, when a small, light-coloured vehicle collided with his bike and a road sign.
