Northumbria Blood Bikes regret to announce that one of our volunteers was involved in a road traffic accident at approximately 18:00 yesterday evening, whilst on their way to begin the start of their operational shift, on the A1 Northbound near to Dunston. The rider was treated at the scene and taken by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Gateshead. They have some minor injuries but have luckily escaped without any broken bones and are expected to make a complete recovery.
Please bare in mind that the incident remains under investigation at this time, therefore we are unable to comment further. We would ask that readers of this post refrain from any speculation while enquiries continue.
