Police appeal to solve injured Welwyn Garden City cyclist mystery

A CYCLIST sustained head injuries, concussion and a suspected fractured eye socket – and she has no idea how.

Police are appealing for witnesses who saw what happened to a woman as she cycled to WGC railway station on Friday morning.

The woman was riding along Broadwater Road at around 7.50am and turned left into Hyde Way.

But she arrived at the station with a cracked cycle helmet and injuries to her hands and body.

A passer-by assisted the woman, who was taken to the QE2 Hospital and kept in overnight, but she cannot remember how she got injured.

“If anyone was travelling along a similar route to the railway station and saw a woman get into difficulty on her bike, I would ask that you get in contact.”
