POLICE are appealing for information and witnesses after a man riding a bicycle was seriously injured in a road collision in Wythall on Tuesday, November 27.
It happened at about 6.23pm on the A435 and involved a white articulated truck and a pedal cyclist.
Both were travelling in the same direction along the dual carriageway when they were in collision opposite the Texaco garage.
The cyclist, a man in his 20s from the Birmingham area, sustained serious injuries and was taken by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. His injuries are not thought to be life threatening and he is currently in a stable condition.
The driver of the truck, a man in his 30s, was uninjured.
One lane of the A435 was closed for most of the evening.
