Police Investigate Selby Cyclist Death on A63
8:17am 2nd April 2013
Police inquiries are continuing into a fatal road traffic collision that happened on Good Friday (Friday 29 March 2013) on the westbound carriageway of the A63.
Humberside Police say that a 65-year-old cyclist from Selby, who was taking part in an organised time trial cycle race at the time, died as a result of the incident that happened just before 10.40am, approximately three-quarters of a mile east of South Cave.
Officers say the collision involved the cyclist and a Landrover Freelander that was towing a white Sterling Eccles touring caravan.
At the time of the collision, say Humberside Police, it is believed the Landrover and caravan was stationary in lane one of the A63 and the cyclist rode into the rear of the caravan. Officers say the cyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.
Humberside Police add that the road was closed for some time to allow emergency services to manage the scene and examine it thoroughly. It re-opened again shortly before 4:00pm.
The police would still like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or saw the cyclist or caravan immediately prior to the collision.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Humberside Police on the non emergency number 101 referring to log 218 of 29 March 2013.
