Three women were seriously injured in Groningen Monday night in a collision with a car. They were cycling between Hoogkerk and Peize when they were hit head-on. One of the women is in critical condition.

The accident happened near the Weringsedijk. For reasons yet unknown, the car ended up half on the shoulder, half on the bike path. The women were thrown on the road by way of the hood and the windshield of the car.

For now it's unclear how the driver ended up on the bike path. The police are investigating the accident. The driver was unhurt.

A trauma team was dispatched to attend to the wounded.
