A CYCLIST is today fighting for her life following a serious collision with a motorcyclist on a Hampshire road.

Police have closed the Ringwood to Christchurch B3347 road after the incident just before 3pm yesterday.

Emergency services were called to the scene after the woman, aged in her thirties, was in collision with the male motorcyclist aged in his forties.

Police say the woman suffered “life-threatening injuries” and the motorcyclist suffered “serious” injuries in the collision and both are now being treated in hospital.

The road has now been shut between Anna Lane and Dragon Lane near Ringwood and is likely to remain closed until after 6.30pm.

A police spokesman said officers still wanted to speak to witnesses who may have seen the collision.

“Police remain keen to speak to another witness who is believed to be a motorcyclist who was riding nearby at the time,” he said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Totton Roads Policing Unit on 101 or 0845 045 4545 quoting Operation Buttonwood.
