A 56-year-old man who suffered serious head injuries after being hit by a cyclist has died n hospital a week later.

The pedestrian was crossing Wimslow Road near to Didsbury Library when the incident occurred on the 20th June.

It is believed the cyclist remained at the scene when emergency services arrived, but police were not initially informed of the incident and so officers are now appealing to the cyclist to make contact with them to help with their enquiries.

Police Sergeant Andrew Page, of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “This is a tragic incident and our thoughts and sympathies are with the loved ones of the man at this desperately sad time.

“We recognise that the cyclist will be unaware of the sad developments since the collision occurred but we appeal to him directly to get in touch with us and help establish the circumstances so we can fully understand how this incident happened.

“Anyone who may have witnessed this incident or who could have dash cam footage of the incident should also contact police as this would significantly aid our enquiries.”
