A female cyclist is recovering in hospital after colliding with a car in Wodonga early Saturday morning.

The roundabout outside the Wodonga Homemaker Centre was closed as emergency services responded to a collision involving a car and a cyclist at 6am.

Sergeant Mick Maley said the bright light at sunrise may have been a contributing factor, affecting visibility, but the incident was still under investigation.

“The vehicle was travelling South along Bandiana Link Road towards the roundabout, coming from Albury,” he said.

“The cyclist was already in the roundabout coming from Wodonga and she was turning right to go into Victoria Cross Parade.”

Both the 42-year-old cyclist, who was wearing a helmet, and the 57-year-old driver were female NSW residents.

Ambulance Victoria spokesman John Mullen said the cyclist was taken to Albury hospital in a serious but stable condition.

“There was no mention of head injury, she had some back and leg soreness,” he said.

Mr Mullen said paramedics also treated a female in her 20s in a separate incident on Saturday.

“There was a motor vehicle accident at the Chiltern-Howlong Road and Murray Valley Highway,” he said.

“She was trapped in the car and was taken to Albury Hospital in a serious but stable condition.”
