A cyclist has been taken to hospital after being freed from under a truck and trailer unit in Sockburn.

The two collided at the corner of Curletts and Blenheim roads, near the Z service station, about 7.30am today.

A St John spokesman said the cyclist was assessed at the scene and was taken to Christchurch Hospital with moderate to serious injuries.

The man, in his 30s, had been "trapped under an 18-wheeler".

He was freed by the Fire Service, which attended with two fire engines and cutting equipment. Police also attended.

A police spokesman said the road was not blocked as it "appeared to be in a driveway".
