A 67-year-old cyclist has died and a pedestrian is in hospital with serious injuries after a road crash in Argyll and Bute.

The incident took place at around 3.55pm on Tuesday, June 14, on the A815 near Sandbank in Dunoon.

A silver Toyota Yaris collided with the cyclist – who was pronounced dead at the scene – and a 63-year-old woman.

The woman, a pedestrian, was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow with serious injuries.

The driver of the car and a passenger were taken to the Royal Alexandria Hospital in Paisley as a precaution.

Police closed the road for around five hours whilst a full collision investigation was carried out, before it was reopened at about 8.50pm that evening.

Officers are now appealing for information regarding the incident.

Sergeant Hugh Nicolls, of Dumbarton Road Policing Unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the man who has died in this crash and our enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances.

“I am asking anyone who may have been in the area at the time and saw what happened or who has dash-cam footage that could assist with our investigation to get in touch.”

Anyone with information should call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 2204 of June 14.
