Wed, 20 Jan 2021

A man has been arrested following the death of a cyclist in St Johns.
21-year-old Luke McNicholas died after being involved in collision with a car. Mr McNicolas was riding his bicycle near the Western Civic Amenity site on Saturday afternoon where the collision occurred - he was taken to Noble's Hospital but passed away.
Police have confirmed the driver, a 29-year-old local man, has been arrested.
He has subsequently been bailed pending the outcome of ongoing enquiries.
Senior Investigating Officer, Inspector Neil Craig from the Constabulary’s Roads Policing Unit said: “Mr McNicholas is known to have been riding his electric bicycle along the public cycle path in St John’s in a direction towards the Western Civic Amenity site, when he ultimately collided with a vehicle travelling on the Curragh Road around 3.20pm."
"A number of enquiries have been undertaken since the time of the collision, including statements having been obtained from key witnesses who were identified at the scene."
"However, I still wish to appeal to any person who was at or near the location at the time of the collision, who we have not yet spoken to and who may have information that could assist us with our enquiries, to contact either Constable Stephen Hall, or myself, at the Roads Policing Unit based at Police Headquarters on 631212."
"I would also like to specifically appeal to anyone who may have 'dashcam' or 'go-pro' footage covering the areas of either the cycle path near to the Curragh Road, or the Curragh Road itself, between 3pm and 3.20pm on Saturday to come forward and speak to us as soon as possible."
