A woman in her 60s has sadly died following a collision in Chippenham this morning.
Police were called by the ambulance service to Hungerdown Lane, at the T junction with Ladyfield Road, shortly after 6.15am this morning (26/11).
A Vauxhall Mocka had collided with a cyclist.
The cyclist – a local woman – is believed to have suffered a cardiac arrest following the collision and despite the best efforts of our colleagues at the ambulance service, she passed away at the scene.
The woman’s family have been informed and are being supported by a specialist family liaison officer. Our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.
The road was closed from the roundabout by the Pheasant pub to the junction with Sheldon Road and is likely to remain closed for some time while enquiries are carried out.
We would like to hear from anyone who was driving along Hungerdown Lane or Ladyfield Road who may have witnessed the collision, as well as anyone who may have a dash cam fitted to their vehicle which could have captured the incident – this could significantly help with our enquiries.
Anyone with information should call 101 and quote log number 27 of November 26.
