An 80-year-old cyclist has died after being hit by an electric car in
Durham.

The man was airlifted to hospital after being knocked down on the A177
between Bowburn and Shincliffe on Friday morning.

The pensioner, who has not been named, sadly passed away later in the
afternoon at James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.

Both the cyclist and the blue Tesla Model S 90D electric car were travelling
south on the A177 when the collision occurred.

Police were called to the scene at around 9.20am and closed the road, while
the Great North Air Ambulance were requested.

The road remained closed until almost 2pm while investigations took place
and the scene was cleared.

A spokesperson for the Great North Air Ambulance Service said: “We were
called at about 9.10am this morning to Shincliffe with reports of a male
cyclist injured in a collision with a car.

“Our doctor and paramedic treated him at the scene and he was flown to James
Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.”

Durham Constabulary would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the
collision. Call Durham Police on the non-emergency number 101 quoting
incident number 90 of November 10.
