PEOPLE who saw a crash which left a cyclist seriously hurt and closed the A38 for several hours are wanted by police.

Police have appealed for witnesses after the 67-year-old woman was taken to hospital after the crash near Copcut Elm in Droitwich on Tuesday (August 2).

A spokesperson for West Mercia Police said: The collision happened at about 11.20 on the A38 Worcester Road where the cyclist, a 67-year-old woman, was in convoy with three other cyclists travelling south towards Martin Hussingtree.

"As they approached traffic lights a car, which was travelling in the same direction, moved over to give them space but as it did so it was involved in a collision involving two other cars and a lorry.

"One of the vehicles spun out of control and the collision with the cyclist occurred.  She was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham with serious head injuries and is currently in intensive care following surgery.

"No-one else was injured."

The vehicles involved in the crash were a Mazda MX5, a Mercedes lorry, a Hyundai 130 and a Mercedes SUV.

West Mercia Police would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision or saw any of the vehicles, and the manner in which they were being driven, before it happened.

Anyone with information or dashcam footage is asked to visit quoting incident 241 of 2 August.
