Witness appeal after Lancaster cyclist injured in weekend accident, closing road

Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a cyclist was injured in a road traffic collision in Lancaster on Sunday (17th March).

The collision took place around 8.20am on Langthwaite Road in Quernmore when a Vauxhall Combo 200 collided with the pedal cyclist travelling in the opposite direction.

The 35-year-old Lancaster man was thrown from his bike and into an adjacent field and suffered several broken ribs, a collapsed right lung, bruising and grazing.

He is being treated at Royal Lancaster Infirmary.

Sergeant Tracey Ward said: “I’d appeal to anybody that witnessed this collision or with any information that could assist with our investigation to come forward and contact Lancashire Police on 101.”

The driver has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and is currently on police bail until 10th April.

The road was closed for three hours to allow for an investigation to take place.
