A 23-year-old man has died after a serious collision in Quernmore.

Police were called around 3.15pm yesterday (Sunday 14th May 2017) following reports a cyclist had been involved in a collision with a car and found a man at the scene with serious injuries.

It is believed he had been cycling on Postern Gate Road when he collided with a Porsche Cayman close to the junction with Stock-A-Bank Road.

The cyclist, a 23-year-old man, suffered significant injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

The driver of the Porsche, a 76-year-old man from Bolton, was not injured.

Officers closed the road for close to four hours while accident investigators attended the scene. They are now appealing for witnesses following the collision.

“These are tragic circumstances and my thoughts are with this man’s family and friends at this time," commented Sgt Adam Dawson, of Lancashire Police. "We would urge anyone who witnessed the collision and has not yet spoken to police to come forwards.

“Furthermore, if you saw either the cyclist or Porsche before the incident, please get in touch.”
