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.
The Hampshire & Isle of Wight Air Ambulance was scrambled to the scene, but was stood down once overhead.
It’s understood that the man is being treated by paramedics alongside an off-duty nurse who happened to be passing the scene at the time of the incident.
UPDATE – A man in his 80s, who was riding a bicycle at the time of the collision, is being treated for injuries, it has been confirmed.
