A man has been taken to hospital with serious injuries after colliding with a vehicle in Herts.
A previous report on this incident included a statement from emergency services noting that a cyclist had been involved in a collision with a vehicle. However, police logs on road traffic collisions can change quickly, and it has since been confirmed by Herts Police that the collision involved a vehicle and a pedestrian, not a cyclist.
Police rushed to London Road in Welwyn, Hertfordshire, at around 10.10am yesterday morning (Tuesday, August 3).
