Danielle Wragg said she was driving through Oughtibridge this morning at around 8.10am when she saw a bicycle and a car collide at the junction of Station Lane and Church Street.

"It was horrific to watch. He got thrown in the air at quite some force. He had quite a bad head injury and a clearly broken ankle," she said.

"I would like to know how he is as I've not been able to stop thinking about him all day."

Ms Wragg said the cyclist had been heading down Orchard Street before the crash happened.
