Dunn injured in hit and run accident

Dual Commonwealth gold medallist disappointed in driver's actions

Australian dual Commonwealth gold medallist Megan Dunn has had a lucky escape after she was hit by a car while on a training ride in Dubbo last weekend.

Dunn's back wheel was clipped by a ute, knocking her to the ground. Disturbingly, seeing that the 19-year-old was able to move the driver slowed before leaving the scene of the accident.

"My bike was broken and I couldn't ride it, my hand was cut up and I honestly thought they'd just panicked and driven off and they'd come back to see if I was alright and give me a lift back, but they didn't," Dunn told the ABC.

"It's really disappointing because it could've been one of the younger cyclists and they could've been seriously injured and I was just left there on the side of the road.

"For a cycling accident I walked away pretty fine but they didn't know that."

Dunn suffered a broken nose a required stitches to her hand. She had been recovering from a bout of glandular fever while earlier this year, a fractured wrist interrupted her summer campaign.
