Greater Manchester Police are appealing for information after the death of 44-year-old Jason Lee Gibbs subsequent to him colliding with a car on his bike
A man who rode home after being involved in a collision with a car in Manchester on Friday later suffered a cardiac arrest and died in hospital.
Forty-four-year-old Jason Lee Gibbs was cycling home from work on Friday afternoon at around 1.30pm when he was involved in an incident.
He got back on his bike and completed his journey home to Moss Side, but suffered a cardiac arrest at 5.30pm, according to Greater Manchester Police.
Gibbs was taken to hospital, but died on Sunday morning.
Greater Manchester Police are appealing for witnesses as it is unclear whether Gibbs collided with a stationary or moving vehicle.
The incident happened between 1.1pm and 1.50pm on Friday, July 22, between Gorton and Moss Side. Gibbs was riding a blue Kona Fire Mountain bike and wearing a blue helmet.
“My thoughts are with Jason’s family at this distressing time and we have specially trained officers supporting them,” said Police Constable Neil Pennington of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit.
“Unfortunately, we don’t have full details of where the collision happened or what vehicle was involved, but I am urging anyone who saw the collision or was involved to come forward.
“It may not have appeared serious at the time, but a man has died, and any information you have, no matter how small, could help us piece together what happened.”
