WITNESSES are being sought following the death of an 80-year-old cyclist in Nailsea.
At about 1.05pm yesterday (Wed), the man was cycling straight across a mini-roundabout from Stockway North towards Silver Street when he was in a collision with a Ford Focus car.
He sustained serious head injuries and suffered a cardiac arrest before he died at the scene.
Paramedics were sent to treat the man, along with the back-up of the air ambulance, but they were unable to resuscitate him.
Officers investigating the incident are keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the accident.
Anyone with information is asked to call the collision investigation unit on 101.
