Police repeat witness appeal after 31-year-old Essex woman dies from injuries sustained last Thursday

It has been revealed that the cyclist involved in a collision with a car in Norfolk last Thursday that left the driver of the vehicle dead has died in hospital from her injuries. Norfolk Constabulary are continuing to appeal for witnesses to the incident.

The cyclist, a 31-year-old woman from Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex, died in Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, on Saturday, reports BBC News.

She had been taken by helicopter to the hospital following the incident at 4.20pm last Thursday 11 April. The 84-year-old male driver of the car involved, who was from Sheringham, Norfolk, died at the scene.

According to a witness appeal from Norfolk Constabulary: “Officers are keen to speak to anyone who may have spotted a green/silver coloured cycle [a Dawes Galaxy] travelling towards Swaffham, the manner of driving of the Micra or witnessed the incident itself.

“They should contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team at Wymondham roads policing on the non-emergency 101 number.”
