Members of the public partially blocked off the Column roundabout near Shirehall, on Tuesday morning, where the woman was lying in the road next to a damaged push bike.

A woman could be seen on the phone while others gathered around to take care of the person, who was kept warm with people's coats.

Emergency services were not on the scene as of 11.25am. A silver VW Polo and a black Mercedes A Class stopped on the roundabout.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "We were called to reports of a collision between a car and a cyclist at the junction of the A458 and A5064 at 11.14am.

"One ambulance and a paramedic officer attended the scene. On arrival we discovered one patient, a woman, who was the cyclist. She was treated for potentially serious injuries before being taken to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital."
