A 71-year-old man badly hurt in an accident wants to thank a motorcyclist who may have saved him from greater harm.
Former miner Brian Hey was hurt when he was knocked off his mountain bike by a hit and run driver at Grange Moor.
He cycles every morning from his home at Middlestown near the National Coal Mining Museum to the Wakefield Road roundabout at Grange Moor and then back home via Flockton.
But at 7.10am on Thursday, October 26, he was riding on Wakefield Road towards the Grange Moor roundabout when he was badly hurt close to the junction with Ben Booth Lane.
He said: "Almost every morning I see a motorcyclist on the same road and apparently it was him who found me lying in the road.
"I'm very thankful to the motorcyclist as I was in the road with my head close to the white line."
It may be he was hit by the wing mirror of a large vehicle such as a van or a lorry.
Mr Hey had cuts to his head and a broken collarbone and pelvis.
Anyone with information about how Mr Hey came to be hurt should contact Pc Gavin Brennan at Huddersfield traffic police on 01484 436847.
