A 66-year-old man was seriously injured after colliding with a tractor on Oroua Road north of Palmerston North.

The accident happened about 5:20pm last night.

Feilding sergeant Dave Burmeister said the man appeared to have dropped the bike in an effort to avoid a collision, and in doing so slid and hit the side of a tractor mowing the grass verge.

The man was taken to Palmerston North Hospital with serious leg, arm and neck injuries.

The cause of the crash is not known.

Not really - but I'll be once NZ serve up some dramatics.

Old episodes of Friends are more exciting.
