A teenage cyclist was left with life-threatening injuries after a crash on the Cambridgeshire guided busway.
The 16-year-old from Cambridge is in hospital where he is said to be in a “serious but stable condition”.
Last month a woman pedestrian died following a crash involving a guided busway bus.
And in 2018 Steve Moir was killed when he, too, was hit by a bus on the guided busway at Trumpington.
Tuesday’s crash took place at 5.46pm on the guided busway between Chariot Way and Chieftain Way, Cambridge.
The 16-year-old boy from Cambridge was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The bus driver remained at the scene and helped police with their enquiries.
