Cyclist seriously injured in Evendons Lane collision in Wokingham

Police

Witnesses are being sought following a collision in Wokingham yesterday.

Thames Valley Police said that a cyclist in his 50s has been left with life-threatening injuries after a collision  in Evendons Lane around 3pm on Saturday, June 22. The police have not said what the cyclist collided with. 

He is currently in hospital where he remains in a serious condition.

Earlier today, police appealed for the driver of a red hatchback car to come forward as she is thought to be a witness to the collision. She has since done so. Now police are appealing for any other witnesses to come forward to help with their investigation. 

An update on social media said: “The witness has now been located. However, if anyone else has any footage or information about the collision then please contact police”

Earlier today, investigating officer, Sergeant Matt Cadmore of the Roads Policing Unit of Thames Valley Police, said: “I am appealing to a woman who was driving a red hatch back and witnessed the collision to please contact the police as soon as possible. We would ask this woman to leave her details on our website at https://www.thamesvalley.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/cor/tell-us-about-existing-case-report/ or call 101, quoting reference number 43190188562.

“If anyone else has footage or information about the collision please also contact the force as soon as possible.”

 

++ This story has been updated since original publication. We mistakenly said that the cyclist collided with a car, but the information from the police press office does not state this. We apologise for our error.

Jane,
Would you be the lady in the red car who sat with the casualty.
If so the police are trying to contact you.

Simon Beech I was the lady in the red car. I wasnt asked to give details and afterwards thought I should have. But I have now been in contact with the police and they have taken a statement. If you want to know anything else please let me know. I hope he makes a good recovery.

Jane

That’s incorrect. The cyclist did not collide with a car, he simply came off his bike and fell onto the pavement.

Jane

I am not. I simply was there after the accident occurred. I can assure you I have helped as much as I can.

Hi Jane can you get in touch with the police anyway…. if you’re one of the kind people who stopped for him, he seemed well at the time, but deteriorated, which is why they didn’t ask for witness details at the time. We now need as much info as possible about what happened (despite the way the article is worded, they do know there was no collision)
Thanks…. (am a member of the family) x

BC

Sorry, should have said. Very grateful for your kindness x

Jane

I have already spoken to the police on the day. There is nothing else I can do I’m afraid. I hope he is well, sending love and well wishes.
