A cyclist was airlifted to hospital with serious head injuries yesterday afternoon after a crash in Potton – with police now appealing for witnesses to come forward following the arrest of a man.
Emergency services including the East Anglian Air Ambulance were called at approximately 12.25pm yesterday to a crash in Hatley Road – which links Potton with Cockayne Hatley and Wrestlingworth – after a car and a cyclist collided.
The cyclist – a man believed to be in his 40s – was unconscious but breathing when the air ambulance crew and paramedics arrived, and regained consciousness at the scene.
The man was subsequently airlifted to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge with serious head injuries.
As well as the air ambulance and crew, a rapid response vehicle and an ambulance officer were also sent to the scene.
One man has been arrested in connection with the incident and officers have launched a public appeal as investigations continue.
A police spokesman said: “We are appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision, or anyone who was travelling along the road at around the time of the incident, to get in touch.
