IPSWICH town star Alan Lee has been left shaken after his high-powered car was involved in a collision which left a cyclist in hospital with serious injuries.

The 28-year-old Blues star was driving his Porsche when the accident happened in Mill Hill, Dedham, at around 3.45pm on Tuesday.

A 31-year-old cyclist suffered a broken leg and internal injuries and was taken to Colchester General Hospital, where he remains today.

His condition is said to be serious but stable.

Lee is not believed to have been injured in the collision.

An Ipswich Town spokesman told The Evening Star that Lee was concerned about the cyclist and was being kept informed of his condition.

The spokesman said: “As with anyone who is involved in a collision he was shaken.

“It is a private matter but as you would expect police are investigating the accident.

“Alan and the club's thoughts are with the cyclist who we wish a speedy recovery.”

A spokeswoman for Essex Police said they were appealing for witnesses to the collision.

She said: “A 31-year-old man from Dedham is in hospital with serious injuries after a collision on Mill Hill in Dedham that occurred at 3.45pm on August 7.

“The injured man was riding a pedal cycle when he was in collision with a Porsche car being driven by a 28-year-old man also from the Dedham area.

“The casualty was taken to Colchester General Hospital with a broken leg and internal injuries. The car driver was uninjured.”

Lee signed a two-year contract with Ipswich on Monday following intense speculation about his future and a possible move to Championship rivals Hull City.

He moved to Town 18 months ago in a £150,000 deal from Cardiff City and finished as the Blues' top scorer last season netting 17 times during the campaign.

Anyone who may have seen the accident is asked to call Stanway Road Policing Unit on 01206 762512.
