Pictures show a road closure in place after a cyclist was hit by a car.
An air ambulance landed at the scene in High Street, Benfleet, at around 11.30am this morning (Sunday November 18) after a collision between a cyclist and the driver of an Audi A4.
The road remains closed while emergency services work at the scene, with pictures showing a cordon in place stopping traffic entering the road.
An officer at the scene told our reporter that one person had been airlifted to the Royal London Hospital in the aftermath of the crash, which caused heavy traffic and long delays on Station Road, School Lane, and the roundabout with High Road and High Street.
An Essex Police spokeswoman said: “We were called shortly before 11.20am on Sunday, November 18 with reports a cyclist and an Audi A4 were involved in a collision in High Street, Benfleet.
“The road is closed while emergency services are on scene.”
