A CYCLIST sustained serious head injuries after being involved in a collision with a bus in Lancaster yesterday.

The single decker bus was travelling on North Road in slow moving traffic when the collision occurred at around 3.40pm.

The 67-year-old female cyclist, from Lancaster, sustained serious head injuries and is currently in a serious but stable condition at Royal Preston Hospital after undergoing surgery.

Sergeant David Hogarth from the Road Policing Unit said: “I would appeal to anybody that witnessed this collision or with any information that could assist with our investigation to contact police on 101.”

North Road was closed for around four hours to enable an investigation to take place.
