A TEENAGER spent the night in hospital after being knocked off his bike on London Road, in Boston, yesterday.

A police spokesman said the 15-year-old boy, from Tytton Lane, was taken to hospital on a spinal board and with a bleeding head and kept overnight for observation following the incident at 4.15pm.

They said the boy collided with a Silver Daewoo Matiz driven by a 68 year old man from Kirton End. He hit the bonnet and windscreen which shattered and was thrown several metres from the car.
