When they catch the perpetrator, they should go to gaol for some substantial time, and be banned from driving for life.

The odds are high that the driver had a genuine reason for not stopping and being interviewed by the Police. He / she was most likely driving illegally. Perhaps one or more of the following: uninsured, disqualified, had outstanding warrants, or they were driving under the influence of drink or drugs, or a combination of these.

It is much more likely that the car collided with the bicycle.
