Default Cyclist seriously injured in suspected hit-and-run

A cyclist has been seriously injured in a suspected hit-and-run in the Black Country. The 28-year-old male cyclist was hit on Spon Lane South in Smethwick just after 4.30pm on Thursday and taken to hospital with leg, pelvis and spine injuries.

A 35-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of failing to stop a short distance from the scene and remains in custody.

Officers cordoned off the road, which goes under the M5, late into the evening and a blue car was recovered from the scene.

A spokeswoman for West Midlands Police said: "We’re investigating after a car hit a cyclist on Spon Lane South, Smethwick, just after 4.30pm yesterday.

"A 28-year-old man was taken to hospital in a serious condition, where he remains today with injuries to his leg, pelvis and spine.

"A 35-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of failing to stop a short distance from the scene and remains in police custody."

West Midlands Ambulance Service sent one crew to the scene. A spokeswoman for the service said: "We were called at 4.37pm to reports of a collision involving a car and a cyclist on Spon Lane South. One ambulance attended.

"The cyclist, a man, was given treatment on scene for serious injuries before being taken to Sandwell Hospital for further care."

Police confirmed enquiries are continuing and anyone with information is asked to contact officers via Live Chat at west-midlands.police.uk between 8am and midnight, quoting crime reference 20SW/117191P/2
