Cyclist taken to hospital after Chorley collision

Written by on July 14, 2020

A cyclist has been taken to hospital after a collision with a car in Chorley.

Officers were called to the scene on Birkacre Brow in Coppull at around 11am this morning (July 14).

Lancashire Constabulary has reiterated the importance of wearing a helmet after shocking photos show the car’s windscreen shattered from the impact.

However, it has not been clarified whether the cyclist was wearing a helmet or not.

Posting on social media, officers said: “If ever there was a scene to promote the wearing of a cycle helmet, this is it.

“Rider of a bicycle and a car have collided on Birkacre Brow, Coppull. Rider off to hospital and road will be open shortly.”

The condition of the cyclist is currently not known.

The road was closed following the incident at around 11am but was opened shortly after the tweet.
