Mr Wilson, 73, suffers from prostate cancer, was left with facial injuries' I hit the floor and he did not ring an ambulance – a neighbour had to ring an ambulance.' Mr Wilson said that as he lay on the floor waiting for emergency services to take him to hospital, passersby's also demanded the cyclist's name. He said the man refused to give his full name.
