Officers need your help after a cyclist was involved in a crash that left him with serious injuries.

A 53-year-old man fell from his bike at around 10.30am on the A621, Baslow Road, between Owler Bar and Baslow, on Saturday, July 14.

The incident involved a dark/black coloured car that was overtaking a light coloured car. The dark coloured car may have clipped the rider travelling on the opposite side of the road – heading towards Owler Bar.
