POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a cyclist sustained head injuries in a crash on a Hampshire road.

He was taken to hospital following the collision involving the cyclist and two cars, which happened on Curdridge Lane, in Curdridge.

The 43-year-old man remains in a serious but stable condition.

The incident happened when a blue Mitsubishi Space Star and the cyclist travelling from Waltham Chase towards Botley collided with a grey Ford Focus travelling in the opposite direction on the road opposite Woodman's Farm.

Both the car drivers were treated in hospital for minor injuries and later discharged after the collision, which happened just before 7.45am on Wednesday .

PC Faye Cappleman, from the Roads Policing Unit said: “I'm very keen to hear from anyone who may have seen either one of these vehicles or the cyclist travelling beforehand, or who may have witnessed the collision.

“I'm aware that this road is a popular cut through for traffic accessing the back of Botley and many drivers may have been on their morning commute.

“I'm appealing for anyone with any information to contact police.

“I am very grateful for people's patience and understanding whilst we were on scene investigating this incident as the road was closed for some time.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call PC Cappleman at Fratton Roads Policing Unit on 101, quoting Operation Attina.
