A 35-YEAR-OLD cyclist is in a serious condition after being knocked down in a hit-and-run accident in Town Bush Road, Chase Valley,  yesterday.

ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks said paramedics found the man, who was being assisted by members of the public, lying in the road. “The patient had sustained a possible neck injury, head injuries and fractures to his lower extremities.” He was taken to Medi-Clinic in a serious but stable condition.

Banks said it is believed the man was on his way home from work when he was hit. The impact catapulted the man into the air and saw him land about 15 metres from his bike, Banks said. The vehicle did not stop at the scene.
