Cyclist knocked off bike along Rocks Rd


A male cyclist is being taken to Nelson Hospital after being knocked off his bike.
The incident occurred just before 10.30am outside The Boathouse on Rocks Road.
A local man who wished only to be identified as Steve said he was in his parked car and just clipped the edge of the cyclist as he opened the door.
“The ambulance is getting his details and will take him to hospital but he didn’t have any external injuries.”
A couple driving past 30 seconds after the accident blocked the traffic with their car and wrapped a blanket around the man until ambulance officers arrived.
