THE wife of a cyclist who was seriously injured in a horror hit-and-run accident has urged witnesses to come forward.
Greig Millar is due to undergo surgery on his spine in Glasgow after being mown down and left lying in a ditch on Tuesday morning.
The 35-year-old was hit by a car as he cycled on Eaglesham Moor. 
Mr Miller, an air traffic controller, who lives in Newlands, Glasgow, was out training for a cycling competition when it happened.
He was taken by ambulance to Hairmyres Hospital. 
His wife Natalie, 33, said: "Hopefully someone will come forward.
"He is still in Hairmyres Hospital but is due to be transferred to Glasgow for surgery on his spine on Thursday because there are specialists there.
"He is okay, he is a very positive person.
"He is stable and fully conscious and managed to eat something today.
Natalie found out about her husband after passers-by discovered him lying in a ditch and called her from his phone.
Mrs Millar said: “It was a shock. It happened at the back of four. There was a lot of sunlight yesterday and Greig was cycling uphill. He said he just felt a car hit him from behind and it knocked him right off his bike.
“He landed in a ditch. The driver didn’t stop.
“He managed to wave his hand and luckily a few people stopped and helped him.”
Mr Millar’s family have rallied round to support him. Mrs Millar, a marketing manager, said: “His helmet was cracked right down the middle. It just reminds you that it could have been a lot worse.”
Police said the crash happened as Mr Millar was cycling west through Eaglesham, East Renfrewshire on to Moors Road, a mile west of Alnwick Drive. The car lost a wing mirror. 
Mrs Millar has asked anyone with information to come forward. She said: “We’re desperate to get more information.”
A Police Scotland spokeswoman confirmed that the driver failed to stop and the car may have been silver in colour.
Inquiries are under way and officers from Greater Glasgow’s Road Policing Unit are appealing for anyone with any information to contact them on 101.
