A CYCLIST died three days after a collision with a bus in North Lancashire.

Joan Behar, 67, suffered fatal head injuries in the crash that happened at about 3.40pm on Tuesday March 4.

Police are now appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

Sergeant David Hogarth from the Road Policing Unit said: “Sadly following this collision Mrs Behar has since passed away.

“Her family are being supported by a specially trained family liaison officer and I would appeal to anybody that witnessed this collision or with any information that could assist with our investigation to contact police on 101.

“I would be particularly keen to speak with anybody who saw Mrs Behar pushing her bike or cycling down Rosemary Lane contraflow to traffic prior to the collision.”

The single decker bus had been travelling south in slow moving traffic on North Road, Lancaster, near to the junction with Chapel Street.

North Road was closed for about four hours while police investigated.

Mrs Behar, from Lancaster, died at Royal Preston Hospital on Friday March 7.
