Det Sgt Richard Forrester, of Force CID, said: “This collision has left a man very seriously injured and we’re trying to establish exactly what happened.

“Bristol Road is busy at that time of the evening and we’d ask anyone who saw the incident or has any dash cam footage to get in touch with us.”
