Police are appealing for witnesses and video footage following a road rage incident on the A51 near Tarvin.
At around 5.40pm on Tuesday 25 October a motorcyclist was riding towards Chester on the A51, Tarvin Road, when he was approached from behind by a white Volkswagen Passat.
The car was being driven at speed and attempted to overtake the black motorbike a number of times.
Due to concerns for his safety, the motorcyclist decided to pull over into a layby near to the Esso petrol station at Barrow.
As he pulled over the driver of the Passat appeared to deliberately ram the motorbike from behind, causing the rider to fall to the floor.
The Passat then made off at speed, travelling towards Chester.
Detective Sergeant Paul Davis, of Chester CID, said: “Thankfully the rider of the bike managed to escape with only minor injuries, however, the outcome could have been far worse.
“From the accounts that we have received so far this appears to have been a deliberate road rage incident and we are committed to doing all we can to trace the person responsible.
“As part of our investigation I’m keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and believes they may have witnessed the incident.
“The same goes for anyone with any dashcam footage of incident, or footage of the white Passat travelling towards Chester.
“I would also like to hear from anyone who believes they know the whereabout of the Passat, which is likely to have damage to the front offside bumper.”
Anyone with any information or video footage is asked to visit www.cheshire.police.uk/tell-us, or call 101 quoting IML 1397116.
Information can also be reported anonymously, via Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111.
