“He was very seriously injured and we are hoping he will get through it,” a source said per The Irish Mirror.
“He is a very active man, cycling all his life, he is a serious cycling enthusiast, and he was involved as a marshal with the Tour de France for a couple of years, and he is also big into motorbikes.”
“The road was closed for about ninety minutes when they extracted him into the ambulance, it was a very serious incident, he is lucky to be alive and hopefully he will pull through.”
“Gardaí and emergency services attended the scene of a traffic collision that occurred at approximately 3:25pm on Tuesday, the 7th February 2023 on the N20 in Patrickswell, Co Limerick,” said a spokesman for the Gardai.
“A truck and a cyclist were involved in this collision. The cyclist, a man aged in his 60s, was conveyed to University Hospital Limerick for treatment of serious injuries sustained as a result of this collision.”
