Carol Kirkwood, BBC Breakfast weather presenter, has told of her “nasty knee injury” after being hit by a car while riding her bicycle. She said that she had been riding her bike and minding her own business when a car came out of nowhere and drove straight into her. She stated that it was a pure accident but thanked the three cyclists who stopped to help her and also paid thanks to the police and hospital staff who aided her recovery. The 57 year old presenter is now back at work presenting the weather every morning. She is a regular presenter on the show and, in 2015, took part in Strictly Come Dancing partnering Pasha Kovalev. She came 10th after being eliminated after 7 weeks.
