A 47-year-old Royal Marine was injured when his bicycle was in collision with a 4×4 vehicle pulling a horsebox in Devon.

Police are seeking witnesses to the incident that took place between 11.40am and midday on Sunday 28 August, between the Dartmoor Diner and Roborough roundabout on the A386.

Stuart Edwards, from Plymouth, was riding his silver Certini racing bike when he was struck causing him to fall and be injured.

Police constable Abi Bedson of Devon and Cornwall Police’s serious collision investigation unit said: “We do not have any information on the make or model of the vehicle involved although it may have been brown or red and possibly may have joined the A386 from the Clearbrook direction.

“We ask that anyone who drove along this road with a horse trailer between the given times come forward so we can eliminate them from our enquires.

“We are open to the possibility that the driver was unaware that he had collided with the pedal cycle so we would ask that all drivers who may fit the description make contact.”

Mr Edwards is being treated at Derriford Hospital for two fractured ribs, a fractured right hip and a punctured lung.
