Cyclist injured in Albion Park Rail collision

A cyclist has been injured in a collision with a car on the Princes Highway at Albion Park Rail. 

The man came off his bike and went underneath the front of a 4WD, as the car pulled out of the suburb’s McDonald’s restaurant about 1.20pm Wednesday.

The Mercury understands the 54-year-old cyclist was riding on a footpath lining the Princes Highway when the collision occurred.

The 4WD exited the restaurant and pushed him and his bike towards the highway before coming to a stop with the bike still wedged under the wheels. 

The man’s lower leg was fractured and his bike was seriously damaged under the weight of the car. 

He remained conscious throughout his ordeal.

NSW Ambulance paramedics transported him to Wollongong Hospital in a stable condition. 

The 4WD had a female p-plater at the wheel. She is assisting police with their inquiries.
