A cyclist has died following a road traffic collision with a car in Shropshire last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A458 near Ford, just outside Shrewsbury, shortly before 5.45pm and sent an ambulance and a paramedic area support officer to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found the cyclist, a man, at the roadside.

“He was in cardiac arrest and already receiving CPR from an off duty nurse and police.

“Ambulance staff took over and administered advanced life support but unfortunately it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The driver of the car was uninjured in the incident.”
