Renewed appeal for witnesses following fatal Cowplain collision
Main article content
We continue to appeal for witnesses to a collision in Cowplain late on Friday night (23 July) after a moped driver died.
Police were called at 11.56pm following the collision, which involved a black moped and a black Mercedes on Milton Road near to the parade of shops.
The moped driver, a 35-year-old man from Cowplain, was seriously injured and members of the public started CPR, but he was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.
His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.
We are not looking for any other vehicles in connection with the incident, and the driver of the Mercedes has been spoken to. No arrests have been made.
Prior to the collision, the moped is reported to have driven along London Road, from the direction of Widley, before turning on to Hambledon Road and then Milton Road.
Officers would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened, but are particularly keen to capture any footage from dash cams, doorbell cameras and CCTV of the moped between London Road and Milton Road, in the moments leading up to the collision.
