ELDERLY CYCLIST INJURED IN COLLISION WITH VAN IN RYDE

Emergency services including the Police and the Isle of Wight Ambulance Service are in attendance at a collision involving a car and an elderly man in Ryde this afternoon (Tuesday).

An ambulance, several police units and a paramedic officer have descended onto the junction between Swanmore Road and Partlands Avenue after receiving reports of a man being struck by a van.

Several members of the public have provided first aid to the man, who is thought to have suffered a head injury in the incident. A smash mark can be seen on the windscreen of a blue van which is believed to have been caused by the impact.

Yet another island road traffic collision and this one, like many others, involving personal injury.
I was scanning through Island Echo’s ‘Breaking News’ a few days ago and I was struck by the fact that almost every other report was about a road traffic incident.
Since the removal of a dedicated Roads Policing Unit on the island a few years ago, driving standards have dangerously declined and evidenced by the sheer number of collisions.
It’s not all down to boy and girl racers either. White Van Man and some OAPs are equally guilty.
