An elderly pedestrian has died after colliding with a cyclist in Stevenage.
The woman, aged in her 70s, was walking through an underpass when she collided with the cyclist, a man, who was using the cycle path adjacent to Martins Way on Friday, November 13.
The woman suffered multiple injuries and was taken to hospital, but despite the best efforts of those involved, she sadly passed away on Sunday.
The cyclist also suffered serious injuries, including fractures to the ribs and collarbone, and remains in hospital.
This incident was not immediately reported to officers, and Herts police are now appealing for witnesses or information.
