Sergeant Mark Atkins, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Roads Policing Unit, said: “I would like to thank the members of the public who stopped at the scene to help treat this man, who have helped ensure this incident was not even more serious.

“I know a number of vehicles were in the area and left the scene before police arrived. The people in those vehicles may have crucial information or dash cam footage to help us work out what happened.

“If you saw anything or have any information which can help our investigation, please get in touch.”
