A 61-year-old man is this country’s latest road fatality.
Police said the man, whose address and next of kin are still to be ascertained, was knocked from his pedal cycle sometime around 11:20 last night along Oistins Road, Christ Church, at its junction with Pegwell Road.
He was knocked off the cycle by a truck which was being driven by 28-year-old Matthew Headley of Pegwell, Christ Church.
The cyclist sustained head injuries and was transported by ambulance to the QEH for medical attention. He subsequently succumbed to his injuries.
Investigations are continuing.
