Twitter is going off. He has been hit by either a car, van or lorry. Injuries are minimal, not life threatening, broken bones or self diagnosed broken ribs. Driver is a woman. Police arrived way before ambos. People were stuck in servo due to exits being blocked.

Phew!

Stand down everyone - the female driver was not injured, I say again not injured.

She should buy a lotto ticket... so lucky.

Wigo turned (sky) blue... I think this could all be a PR stunt - unless the car driver turns out to be a Mrs Froome then it could get a bit nasty.

It just really makes me angry that you can't even drive out of a petrol station these days without a cyclist cleaning you up. Soon we will have to pay attention whilst driving.

It is time to take a stand!

Ya those bloody Olympic/TdF hoons, more than likely he was probably speeding, that must be it, lock him up. The driver must have freaked when she was told who she cleaned up, he would have to be a massively well known national hero over there now, even the non cycling masses would have know him.

If just he was on the same juice that Armstrong has been using - that way he would have been well past this intersection long before the car had arrived .... :D

Nah, Lance would have given the motorist "the look" and the driver would have stopped immediately.

Let me guess. It's either:

The driver did'nt see him.

or she was texting.

Whatever the case we should be glad she was'nt hurt. :x

Days before, Bradley shaved off his “lucky” sideburns — credited with helping to make him a British sporting hero.
