A 70 year old man has sadly passed away following a collision in Welwyn last week.

Police were called to Kimpton Road at 6.45pm on Thursday 2 September, to reports that a man had come off an electric tricycle.

The ambulance service was also called to the scene. He was taken to hospital with serious injuries, but sadly died on Friday afternoon (3 September).

PC Neil Crosier, of the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the victim at this distressing time, and we are working to establish the exact circumstances that led to the collision.

“We are still appealing for witnesses and information. The vehicle, a white electrically assisted Alpine tricycle, is very distinctive. If you recall seeing it prior to the collision, please get in touch.

“I would like to appeal to anyone who was driving in Kimpton Road between 6.30pm and 7pm last Thursday evening to please get in touch, as you may have information which could assist with our investigation – especially if you have a dash cam fitted to your vehicle.

“Any information, even something which may seem minor or insignificant, could be key to progressing our investigation.”
