Cyclist Bradley Wiggins has been taken to hospital after colliding with a vehicle while on his bike. The Lancashire Evening Post reports that the 32-year-old Tour de France winner and Olympic gold medallist suffered injuries to his wrist and hand, and it is believed that he may have broken several ribs. The incident occurred near Wiggins's home in Lancashire today (November 7) at 6pm after a vehicle was pulling out of a petrol station forecourt and collided with him. Yasmin Smith, an attendant at the garage, said: "By the time I got there he had moved to a safer place but was still on the ground and he was in a lot of pain. "He said he thought he had broken his ribs and while a lot of police cars arrived it was about 15 minutes before the ambulance got there by which time he was blue."
