First published in News

Police have renewed their appeal for witnesses after a woman cyclist died in Southampton when she was in a crash with an articulated lorry.

The accident happened at about 11.35am Tuesday, at the junction of Northam Road and Prince’s Street.

The cyclist is believed to be a 29-year-old Southampton woman who died from her injuries at the scene.

The white-cabbed Volkswagen lorry, with a silver grain carrier trailer, was driven by a 59-year-old Cumbria man who wasn’t hurt.

Prince’s Street and part of Northam Road were closed for three and a half hours while crash investigation work was completed.

Police want to hear from anyone who saw the incident or either vehicle shortly before the collision. The cyclist was on a blue bike which was on Northam Road, heading towards the city centre, before the collision. The lorry was travelling in the same direction on Northam Road.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Operation Bursary and Sergeant Julian Ainsworth at Totton Roads Policing Unit on 101.

This is so sad, although I didn't know her directly, I knew of her through a friend a few years back. RIP :(
