POLICE are appealing for help after a cyclist was tragically killed following a fatal collision with a car in Kerseley, Coventry earlier today (Monday, January 20).

The accident occurred just before 6.30am on Tamworth Road in Keresley.

Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and a Critical Care Car from the Air Ambulance Service attended the scene.

A 38-year-old male cyclist suffered serious injuries and sadly passed away at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire, police report.

The driver stopped at the scene and is assisting police with their enquiries.

The deceased man’s next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

Sergeant Alan Hands, from the serious collision investigation unit, said: “This is a tragic event and we have spoken to a number of witnesses already.

“If you have any information or dashcam footage on the collision please get in touch as soon as possible.

“If you saw a silver-coloured Hyundai i10 being driven in the area of Tamworth Road around the time of the collision, we’d particularly like to speak to you.”
