A Burnham-On-Sea cyclist who was injured earlier this week when she was struck by a passing car is recovering in hospital after suffering more serious injuries than originally thought.

The 59 year-old woman was knocked off her bike on Sunday evening (November 1st) by a passing vehicle as she rode across the roundabout next to Burnham’s Esso petrol station, pictured above.

A relative of the lady has contacted Burnham-On-Sea.com to thank residents for their good wishes, which were made on this website’s forum.

He added: “Unfortunately, she broke a knee in two places, has fractured fingers and has a broken collarbone. She is recovering in hospital after surgery and will probably be there for two weeks. She thanks local people for their good wishes.”
