TWO teenage cyclists needed hospital treatment after being involved in a collision with a car at a supermarket.

The 18 and 17-year-olds were riding their bikes across the zebra crossing at Asda, off Marina Way in Hartlepool, when they were in a collision with a Renault Clio.

One of the cyclists needed treatment for leg injuries, while the other had a fractured wrist and fractured knee cap.

A rapid response paramedic vehicle attended the scene at around 3pm on Sunday.

The teenagers were later taken to the University Hospital of North Tees, in Stockton, after treatment at One Life Hartlepool.

Officers from Cleveland Police closed one side of the road while they carried out their investigations.

A spokeswoman for Cleveland Police said inquiries are ongoing.
