A MAN was struck and injured by a car after suffering an epileptic fit and falling into the road.

The incident happened in Holywell Hill, St Albans, at around 10.30am on Monday when the man, in his 30s and from Richmond, was involved in the accident with a BMW car.

A police spokesperson said the car driver, a man from St Albans, only struck the injured pedestrian very lightly because he had managed to slow down considerably.

Ambulance crews requested the help of firefighters before conveying the casualty to the QE11 Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries.

Police closed the road for a short time until the injured man was taken away in the ambulance.
