Cyclist Killed by Lorry
It is believed the deceased was cycling home from his workplace when he collided with a HGV lorry.
The deceased was approaching a roundabout, when unfortunately the delivery goods lorry driver was driving back to his depot, when he stopped at a busy junction and waited to turn left onto a busy motorway, it is believed the HGV driver did not realise he hit the cyclist until he received a telephone call from his boss a few hours post-accident.
The deceased received CPR from an off-duty doctor at the scene of the accident and was taken to hospital by emergency services were he later passed away.
It has been confirmed the deceased died due to blunt trauma to the chest and multiple injuries.
