Police witness appeal after cyclist killed in Warwickshire 4x4 crash

The fatal collision, involving a Range Rover Evoque, occurred on Saturday morning on a country road near Leamington Spa

A man was arrested at the weekend for causing death by dangerous driving after a cyclist was killed in collision with a 4x4 near Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the fatal collision, which took place at 10.18am on Saturday, on the B4452 Ufton Road, Harbury, and involved a red Range Rover Evoque.

A 33-year-old man was treated by paramedics and doctors from the air ambulance but was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, and was later released on bail until April, while the investigation into the collision takes place.

A spokesperson from the ambulance service told the Coventry Telegraph: “On arrival, ambulance staff found a cyclist who had suffered very serious injuries.

“Despite extensive efforts to save the man, unfortunately, they were in vain and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The man driving the 4x4 was uninjured.”

The Coventry Telegraph reports this is the second local collision involving a cyclist in less than a week. On Thursday a veteran road race cyclist, Jon Stephenson, was hit from behind near Hatton, on Thursday, and suffered serious injuries.

Police are urging witnesses to call 101 quoting incident number 131 of Saturday, 20 February.
