Police are appealing for witnesses, information and dash cam footage following the death of a cyclist in Hemel Hempstead.
The incident occurred at around 1.30pm yesterday (Sunday 16 July), on Pouchen End Lane.
A cyclist, a man in his 60s, was riding a black and blue mountain e-bike, and for reasons yet to be established came off the bike and suffered a cardiac arrest. He sadly died at the scene, and his next of kin have been informed.
A black Ford Fiesta was reported as travelling near to the cyclist at the time, and the driver of the vehicle remained at the scene until officers arrived. No arrests have been made.
Sergeant Tim Davies, from the Road Policing Unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the man’s family and friends at this sad time.
“Our enquiries are continuing, and we are appealing for any witnesses to please come forward. Were you travelling in the area at the time and saw what happened? Additionally, if you saw the cyclist, who was wearing a black top with a black helmet, or the black Ford Fiesta travelling on the road, please get in touch.
“I am also asking anyone who was driving in the area and has a dash cam fitted to please check it as you may have recorded some crucial footage to assist our investigation.”
