David Ardron, 68, died after a collision with an Audi A3 on Bagshot Road in Bracknell on August 19 - a 40-year old has been arrested

The driver of the Audi A3 involved in a collision with a cyclist in Bracknell, Berkshire, has been arrested and bailed on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop.

The 40-year-old motorist reportedly drove off after hitting 68-year-old David Ardron on Bagshott Road on the morning of August 19, with the cyclist dying of his injuries.

Get Reading reports that an inquest into the rider’s death has been opened and adjourned to a later date.

Police closed the road in both directions for four hours as paramedics tried to save Mr Ardron, from the Great Hollands area of the town, but he died at the scene.

Investigating officer Justin Thomas said: “We are aware of at least three people who stopped at the scene and administered first aid, but they left before we arrived.”

The driver, who is reportedly from Surrey, was bailed until Friday, August 28, having been arrested on the day of the incident.

    Unfortunately every cyclist should use cameras as without them prosecution can be very difficult.

    Should be charged with murder or manslaughter not death by dangerous driving. You don’t get charged with death by dangerous fighting

    Shocking. You could argue that the initial collision may have been a terribly unfortunate “accident”, but to then drive off after presumably knowing you’d knocked someone over … they deserve to get the book thrown at them. If they don’t get jail time for that then there is something seriously wrong with the law in this country.
