 Published on: 24th July 2023   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Police are appealing for witnesses, information and dashcam footage following the death of a cyclist in Hemel Hempstead on Sunday, July 16.

A man in his 60s was riding a black and blue mountain e-bike on Pouchen End Lane when, for reasons yet to be established, came off the bike and suffered a cardiac arrest. He sadly died at the scene. His next of kin have been informed.

A black Ford Fiesta was reported as travelling near the cyclist at the time, and the driver of the vehicle remained at the scene until officers arrived. No arrests have been made.

Sergeant Tim Davies, from the Road Policing Unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the man’s family and friends at this sad time. Our enquiries are continuing, and we are appealing for any witnesses to please come forward. Were you travelling in the area at the time and saw what happened?”

“Additionally, if you saw the cyclist who was wearing a black top with a black helmet, or the black Ford Fiesta travelling on the road, please get in touch. I am also asking anyone who was driving in the area and has a dashcam fitted to please check it as you may have recorded some crucial footage to assist our investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to please email Sgt Davies at

You can also report information online, speak to an operator in the Force Communications Room via the online web chat or call the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime ISR 348 of 16 July.

Alternatively, you can stay 100 per cent anonymous by contacting the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via their untraceable online form.
