Crimestoppers reward - death of cyclist Agnieszka Pocztowska

The hit-and-run death of a Crewe mum has prompted charity Crimestoppers to offer £10,000 for anonymous information.

Crimestoppers has launched an appeal for anonymous information into the incident which killed cyclist mum-of-three Agnieszka Pocztowska.

The fatal collision happened on Monday September 14 and was followed by another incident involving another cyclist a short time later.

41-year-old Agnieszka was cycling to start her vital work as a carer in the community at around 6.55am when a silver-coloured Ford Focus collided with her on Hungerford Road in Crewe.

The car sustained serious damage to the windscreen and the driver drove off from the scene.

A short time later, the car hit another cyclist on Crewe Road, near Cartwright Street, injuring a male cyclist.

The car then left in the direction of the M6 and was found 30 minutes later at the junction of the Lymevale Road and Brookfield Road in Trent Vale, Staffordshire.

Police say they have received a lot of information from the public along with dashcam and CCTV footage.

But additional information from the public is required.

Crimestoppers is offering a reward of up to £10,000 for information the charity exclusively receives – either online at or by calling freephone 0800 555 111 – that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for these hit-and-run incidents.

Gary Murray, Regional Manager for the North West at the charity Crimestoppers, said: “This is a particularly heart-breaking case where a mother of three children on her way to work has been killed, and the driver and passenger in the vehicle have fled the scene and then hit another cyclist, causing him injuries a short time later.

“Those who knew Agnieszka describe her as being a beautiful, caring and compassionate person who loved her job and her family.

“We need the public’s help to bring those involved to justice and help the families at this very difficult time.

“Do you have information about who the driver was in the car when it struck the two cyclists?

“Do you have information on either of the two collisions and those who assisted the driver and passenger after they abandoned the car at Trent Vale, near Stoke?

“Every piece of information may be vital to the investigation.

“You can tell our charity what you know 100% anonymously. Always.

“Please call our UK Contact Centre, which is open 24/7, on freephone number 0800 555 111 or you can use our simple and secure anonymous online form at

“Our charity has been taking crime information since we began supporting the public to speak up anonymously over 32 years ago.

“Every day over a thousand people trust our charity with their crime information.

“Nobody will know you contacted us, only you and you’ll be doing the right thing for Agnieszka, her family and colleagues, and helping to protect the wider community.”

A 20-year-old man from Stoke-on-Trent and an 18-year-old man from Trent Vale have been arrested and are on bail pending further investigation.

Information passed directly to police will not qualify for our reward.

Only information passed to Crimestoppers’ using our untraceable anonymous online form at or via our 0800 555 111 freephone number will qualify.
