A CYCLIST suffered head injuries after colliding with a bus outside Mount Vernon Hospital in Northwood last night (Sunday).
The crash took place at 9pm in Rickmansworth Road, which was closed between Kewferry Road and Thirlmere Gardens for several hours.
Emergency services arrived at the scene at about 9.15pm and the cyclist, a 28-year-old male from Barnet, was rushed to hospital with life threatening injuries, although his condition is now believed to be stable.
On impact, the bus, which was running on the H11 route to and from Harrow, lost control and smashed through a wall at the hospital.
It is understood the bus was carrying no passengers. The driver was not injured and passed initial police tests at the scene.
