A WOMAN cyclist is fighting for her life after an horrific collision on a busy Wigan commuter route this morning.
The as-yet-unnamed 35-year-old suffered serious head and neck injuries in the smash with a Vauxhall Vectra on the East Lancashire Road, near Newton Lane, at Golborne.
Long traffic tailbacks developed on the dual carriageway when police closed the eastbound carriageway of the A580 from Haydock Island to protect the scene following the 7.45am crash. This was re-opened at 10.35am.
Police say no arrests have been made.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0161 856 4741 / 4742.
