A woman has been reported for summons for driving without due care and attention after cyclist Bradley Wiggins was knocked off his bike.

The Tour de France winner was in a collision with a van pulling out of a garage forecourt in Wrightington, Lancashire, on Wednesday evening.

Lancashire Police said the 44-year-old woman had voluntarily attended an interview.

Olympic gold medallist Wiggins, 32, suffered a bruised hand and ribs.

He spent the night at the Royal Preston Hospital following the incident on Crow Orchard Road but returned to his home in Eccleston the following day.

In a statement, he said: “Although I’m still a little bit sore I will now be spending time at home with my family and concentrating on making a full recovery.

“I’m looking forward to getting back on the bike soon and continuing my preparations for the 2013 season.”

He also thanked staff at the hospital who he said “looked after me so well”.

The driver, who has not been named by police, was not injured in the accident.
