Ollie Pike, 15, swerved to miss a large crater in the road but steered into the path of another pothole – catapulting him over the handlebars. The terrified teen was thrown 30ft down the road and suffered a broken collar bone, a possible fractured cheek bone and a number of deep cuts to his face and head. He was immediately rushed to hospital where worried medics immobilised him amid fears he may have a serious back injury. After a gruelling 12 hours and numerous tests, scans and X-rays, Ollie was finally discharged with his collarbone in a sling and six stitches to his face
