Personal injuries news – Cyclist sustains serious head injuries in Suffolk

03rd August 2012

The 20-year-old man had been riding his bike while being accompanied by a female pedestrian on Lowestoft Road in Reydon, Suffolk, when the incident took place.

After having been to the Southwold Music on the Green festival, and then a rugby match, the pair were reportedly making their way back home when a blue Fiat Punto crashed into the cyclist, causing him to suffer serious head injuries.

Emergency services where called to the scene at around 3:30pm and the cyclist was initially taken to James Paget Hospital. However, his condition deteriorated and he was then transferred to Cambridge’s Addenbrooke’s Hospital.

The young man is apparently still in a life-threatening condition.

The police are calling for witnesses who saw the cyclist and pedestrian leave the rugby event, or anyone who saw the accident occur, to contact them with any information.

If the driver of the Fiat Punto is found to be liable for the collision, the cyclist, or a member of his family acting on his behalf, could make claim for road traffic accident compensation.
