Family of tragedy cyclist in heartfelt plea to driver
11:52am Friday 25th October 2013 in News
THE family of a man killed as he cycled near Wetherby have spoken of how “their lives will never be the same again”.
Darren Greaves, 38, of Wetherby, was cycling along the B1224 between Bickerton and Wetherby at about 5.20pm on October 17, followed by a Vauxhall Astra and a Ford Fiesta.
All three vehicles were overtaken by a black Vauxhall Corsa around 120 metres from Spring Lane when Mr Greaves collided with the Astra.
Mr Greaves’ family said: “We are still trying hard to come to terms with the huge loss of Darren. Our lives will never be the same again.
“If anyone has any information, no matter how small we urge you to speak with North Yorkshire Police.”
Following the incident, police made an appeal to trace the driver of the black Corsa, but to date they have not come forward.
Officers were keen to stress that the driver may not be aware that a collision had occurred.
Sergeant John Lumbard said: “However, their information could be crucial to our investigation to establish the exact circumstances of the crash.
“I am therefore appealing for all drivers of black Vauxhall Corsas who were driving along the B1224 from York to Wetherby between 5pm and 5.30pm on Thursday 17 October, to contact us to enable us to eliminate you from our investigation.”
Anyone with information which could assist the investigation is asked to phone North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 1 and pass information to the force control room quoting incident number 12130180501, or email email@example.com
