Jogger 'Serious' After Bicycle Collision

A man who was out jogging is in hospital with a head injury following a collision with a bicycle.

The incident happened at around 9am on Saturday on the Loan Footpath at its junction with Fergus Avenue in Livingston, West Lothian.

The 49-year-old jogger sustained a head injury and was taken to St John's Hospital, then the Western General, where his condition is now considered serious.

Police said the man and the cyclist did not swap details at the time and officers are now appealing for information.

Sergeant Neil Inglis said: ``We're eager to trace the cyclist, described as a man in his early 20s, and any witnesses as soon as possible in the hope that they can help us establish the full circumstances surrounding this incident.''

Meanwhile, police are appealing for witnesses following a collision between a motorbike and car in East Calder yesterday.

The incident happened at around 5.15pm on the A71 at the junction with the B7031 Camps.

A 41-year-old man was injured and taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary for treatment.

The road was closed for an hour to allow emergency services to attend and the road to be cleared.
