Emergency services were called to the scene of an accident during rush hour at approximately 8.45 am, where a collision had occurred between a cyclist and a Council mini bus.
A spokesperson for the County Council, said: “One of our vehicles was involved in a traffic accident this morning.
“At the moment the matter is still with the police and we do not have any more specific information.”
Both the driver and the cyclist were taken to hospital and the cyclist is known to have sustained minor face and neck injuries and is expected to recover fully.
The drivers injuries are not known at this stage.
Cycling during commuting hours can be a risky business with increased numbers of vehicles on the roads all rushing to get to work on time. Although the mornings and evenings are getting lighter, it can still be a dangerous journey and cyclists and drivers must be alert and responsive at all times. Unfortunately accidents still happen and it is important to get the right support when they happen.
Cycling accidents can be devastating. A cyclist is often left dazed and confused after an accident and it is important to try and get witnesses to give you their details if they saw what happened and contact the Police immediately.
