Emergency services responded to Seven Sisters Road, at the bottom of St Lawrence Shute, at just before 11:00 this morning following reports that a cyclist had come off his bike.
Paramedics from the Isle of Wight Ambulance Service and Police rushed to the scene, where they found the casualty – a man in his 50s – with a head injury.
He was taken to St Mary’s Hospital by land ambulance under Police escort to be met by the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, which had landed on the helipad.
It’s understood that the man is being treated for non life-threatening injuries.
Editor’s footnote: It was originally said that the cyclist was a man in his 20s. It has since been corrected that it was a man in his 50s.
