A cyclist was flown to hospital by air ambulance after suffering serious injuries in York.
As we reported, the incident happened on Askham Lane in York.
It took place at around 1pm yesterday (Tuesday 8 June), and involved a man in his 80s from York who was seriously injured. He was taken to Leeds General Infirmary by air ambulance.
The incident is believed to have occurred between the junctions of Cornlands Road and Tedder Road, which was closed while officers investigated the scene.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “The cyclist was found to have fallen from his bicycle.
“There do not appear to have been any other vehicles involved, although this cannot be entirely ruled out at this stage.”
Officers are therefore appealing for witnesses to the incident, or anyone who may have CCTV or dashcam footage, to get in touch as soon as possible to assist the investigation.
