Emma Davies injured in hit-and-run incident
Commonwealth Games place in doubt for GB international
News is emerging that Great Britain's Emma Davies has been injured in a hit-and-run incident in the UK.
Davies (recently married and just back from honeymoon, now taking the name Davies Jones) was riding to British Cycling's headquarters at the Manchester Velodrome when she was cut-up by a car which turned left across her path.
Although the car did not stop, another vehicle driver did see the incident and has provided registration details and a witness account to the Manchester police.
Davies Jones is expected to be in hospital for several weeks. She has sustained back injured which require her to be immobilised and to remain as motionless as possible. The prognosis is good for a full recovery, but it will be a race against the clock for her to begin riding and training again in time to take up a place on the team for the Commonwealth Games.
Although a track representative for Great Britain, Davies rides on the road for the Belgian women's team Vlaanderen-Capri Son.
WomensCycling.net wishes Emma a speedy recovery.
