Cyclist taken to hospital after collision with taxi in Barrow

A cyclist was taken to hospital after a collision with a taxi in Barrow

The accident happened about 6pm yesterday.

The 54-year-old cyclist’s injuries are described by police as “not life threatening.”

The 41-year-old driver of the Vauxhall Vectra was uninjured.

The incident happened at the junction of Greengate Street and Rawlinson Street, Barrow.

Paramedics at the scene said the cyclist had sustained a leg injury, and applied a splint.

Police said the car driver who works for A1 Taxis in Barrow, was shaken up but uninjured. The windscreen of the vehicle was badly damaged.

A volunteer for Saint John’s Ambulance happened to be in the area at the time of the accident and was able to give the man immediate care.

Have your say

Late to the table with my comment...
Happy to read that no lives were lost.
Total grateful acknowledgement to those responders first at the scene.

Think it's about time taxi drivers were restricted on driving hours like bus and lorry drivers. The operators should lower the radio rent so drivers don't have to work extremly long hours to make a living.
And NO im not blaming the taxi driver just making a point
