Despite the best efforts of staff, sadly nothing could be done to save a cyclist injured in an RTC

Tuesday 5th May 2015 – 8.00pm – Murray MacGregor.

A cyclist has died after he was in collision with a van on a busy dual carriageway.

The crash happened on the westbound A5, just before the slip road to Glascote Island (Marlborough Way) under the pedestrian bridge.

Two rapid response vehicles, an ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance, which was carrying two doctors were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found a middle aged man who had been riding a bicycle who had suffered massive multiple injuries.

“Tragically, it very quickly became apparent that there was nothing that could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The man driving the van was uninjured and did not need any treatment.”
