New Zealand’s Bryony Botha then drove right over them before she crashed herself and went head over heels over the handlebars.

Meenakshi was treated at the scene before being carried away on a stretcher, while Botha walked away and appeared to be fine.

fans reacted to the painful incident on social media when a supporter wished her well.

The race involved British heroine Laura Kenny, who led the pack before the race was stopped.

The event resumed soon after and Kenny put on an impressive performance to win the gold medal for England.

Kenny will be thrilled that she took part after nearly withdrawing from the competition after suggesting the track was too dangerous.

This is the second horrific crash we’ve seen at Lee Valley Velo Park in so many days after England’s Matt Walls was thrown into a crowd after losing control of his bike.

Paramedics had to put up screens to shield Olympic omnium champion Walls while he was treated while a fan was taken away in a blood-covered wheelchair.

The morning session was canceled due to the collision, although there was still one race to go.

Fans were shocked as they feared the same thing could happen again, with one saying on Twitter: “Another accident”.

England are currently second behind Australia in the medal table.
