A SUSPECT remains under investigation a year on from a serious crash that left a cyclist ‘critically’ injured.

At around 4.15pm on Friday, April 14, 2023, Cheshire Police was called to reports of a road traffic collision near to Pink Eye roundabout.

Officers swiftly attended the scene and found that a cyclist had collided with a white Fiat Qubo near the pedestrian crossing on Priestley Street.

The cyclist, a 46-year-old man, sustained ‘serious and life-threatening injuries’ and was rushed to the Walton Centre at Aintree Hospital for treatment.

He was said to be fighting for his life due to being in a ‘critical’ condition.

A large police and paramedic presence was visible at the scene, and road closures were in place for a number of hours with people advised to avoid the area.

A 50-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and released under investigation.

Almost a year on, when asked for an update, Cheshire Police confirmed that the suspect remains released under investigation.

The force issued a public appeal for information over the incident in the aftermath, with anyone with any information, dashcam video of CCTV footage urged to come forward.
