Wiltshire Police say a Honda car was also involved in collision just after noon today

A man suspected of stealing a bike from outside a primary school in Wiltshire earlier today has been taken to hospital following a collision involving a Honda car.

The Swindon Advertiser reports that the rider was taken by ambulance to the Great Western Hospital, although the extent of his injuries is unknown.

The incident happened just before noon close to the junction of Dunsford Close and Kingshill Road, a short distance from the school that the bicycle the man was riding at the time is believed to have been taken from.

A spokesman for Wiltshire Police said: "The bicycle involved in the collision is believed to have been stolen from outside Robert Le Kyng School just prior to the collision.

He added: "Our enquiries are ongoing."

Anyone who has information about the incident is requested to contact Wiltshire Police on the non-emergency number, 101.
