Scots charity cyclist run down during 3000-mile US trek
Father-of-three Alan Corsie was pedalling across the country for Alzheimer's Scotland.
A Scottish cyclist on a 3000-mile charity trek across the US has been left with two broken ankles and a collapsed lung after being hit by a car.
Alan Corsie, 55, of Aberdeen, was less than 500 miles from his destination when he was knocked down in Florida on November 11.
A state trooper may have helped save the father-of-three's life by giving him first aid before he was taken to a hospital in Tallahassee.
Mr Corsie set off on October 1 to raise funds for Alzheimer Scotland, a charity chosen following his mother's recent diagnosis with dementia.
Despite his trek coming to an abrupt end, Mr Corsie has still managed to raise more than £3500.
His daughter Ellen said: "All my dad can remember is waking up in the intensive care unit in Tallahassee, which I think in hindsight is a very good thing as it sounded and looked like a horrific scene.
"Right now we are all just happy he is alive and on the road to recovery.
"As of now, we are unsure when he will be home as flying with a collapsed lung has a lot of complications but we are all looking forward to him coming back."
Ellen, 20, said the family has received hundreds of messages of support since the crash.
"He has done us all incredibly proud and managed to reach his target of £3000," she added.
