A CYCLIST has been rushed to hospital with life-threatening head injuries after a collision with a lorry in Didcot this morning.

The accident happened on Basil Hill Road at about 10.15am and an air ambulance flew to the scene.

The man in his 40s was treated at the scene, but taken to Oxford’s John Radcliffe hospital by land ambulance.

A spokesman for South Central Ambulance Service said his injuries were life-threatening.

Police are still in attendance now and the roundabout for the A4130 is partially closed, although police say it is still flowing.

Anyone who witnessed the accident is asked to call police on 101.
