Police in appeal after cyclist injured
3:15pm Saturday 27th October 2012 in Local news
Police are appealing for a vital witness to come forward after a cyclist was seriously injured in a collision.
The cyclist, a 65-year-old local man, is currently “very poorly” in Airedale General Hospital near Keighley after he collided with a silver Renault van on Skipton Road, Embsay, at around 12.15pm on Thursday.
Investigating officers believe the driver of a small blue Mercedes car which overtook the cyclist just prior to the collision may have information.
Traffic constable Dave Clayton, of Skipton Road Policing Group, said: “The Mercedes had nothing to do with the collision but may be a vital witness.”
Anyone who can help is asked to call police on 101.
