Witnesses are being sought following a serious road traffic collision on Hatchet Road in Stoke Gifford.

At around 8am on Monday morning (19th March) a collision occurred between a motorcyclist and a pedestrian.

The 26-year-old pedestrian suffered a head injury and was taken to hospital where he remains.

Hatchet Road was closed in both directions as a result of the incident and re-opened at 10:40am.

Anyone who may have witnessed this collision is asked to call police on 101.

Rush hour traffic was severely disrupted by the road closure, with buses initially being diverted via Church Road, Hambrook Lane, Old Gloucester Road and Winterbourne Road. Problems with overhanging trees then forced the diversion route to be changed to Filton Avenue, Gloucester Road and Stoke Lane.

A Bristol Evening Post report published on Tuesday morning added that the motorcyclist was checked by paramedics but did not need any further treatment.

Misleading Twitter reports (example) circulating on Monday evening incorrectly implied that people had died in the incident.
