A CYCLIST has tragically died days after falling from an electric bike he was riding.

At around 4pm on Friday, April 19, Cheshire Police was called to reports of an incident on Deacon Road in Widnes.

Officers attended the scene and found that a cyclist had fallen from an electric bike.

It is not believed that any other vehicles were involved in the incident.

The cyclist, a 60-year-old man from Widnes, was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to Aintree Hospital.

His injuries were initially not believed to be life-threatening, but sadly his condition deteriorated, and he passed away on Wednesday, May 22.

Cheshire Police says it is now appealing for any witnesses or anyone with video footage to come forward.

Sergeant Russ Sime, of the force’s serious and complex collision investigation unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the cyclist’s family at this time, who are currently being supported by specialist officers.

“Enquiries in relation to the incident are ongoing, and as part of our investigation we are keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident, or anyone with any dashcam footage.

“The same goes for any local businesses and residents with any CCTV footage which may aid the investigation.”
