Detectives are appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision in Bow.

A male pedestrian collided with a cyclist in Bow Road, near Thames Magistrates’ Court, shortly before 5.05pm on Friday, 3 July 

Peter McCombie, 72, was rushed to hospital with serious head injuries. He died in hospital on Saturday, 11 July. 

The cyclist did not stop at the scene and no arrests have been made. 

“I am appealing to anyone who was in the area at around 5pm on Friday, 3 July and who witnessed this collision, or the events immediately prior to and after the collision to contact the police,” said Detective Inspector Julie Trodden.

“I am particularly keen to speak to any road users who have dash or helmet cam footage of these events; this could prove to be crucial to establishing exactly what happened.

“Finally, I would appeal directly to the cyclist involved – please come forward to assist this investigation but, more importantly, to provide answers to the victim’s family who are grieving the tragic loss of a loved one.

“Although Peter was in his 70s, he was still active and continued to work beyond the retirement age, and would have continued to do so, had it not been for this heart-breaking incident.”

Anyone with information or dash cam footage is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0208 597 4874 or call police on 101 referencing CAD 5779/3 July.
