A man who was left with serious injuries following a road traffic collision in Gateshead earlier this month has sadly died.

At about 11.40pm on Wednesday, May 3, a Mercedes minibus and a man on a bicycle collided on the A694 Lockhaugh Road at the junction with Sherburn Park Drive, in the Rowlands Gill area.

The man on the bike, aged 44, suffered life-threatening injuries in the collision.

He was taken to hospital for treatment but on Sunday he sadly died.

The man’s next of kin are currently being supported by specialist officers from Northumbria Police at this time.

Officers are continuing to appeal to anyone who may have information regarding the collision to contact them.

The driver of the minibus remained at the scene following the collision to assist officers with their enquiries.

Sergeant Michael Parnaby, of Northumbria Police’s Motor Patrols department, said: “This is an incredibly sad update and one which we hoped we would not have to deliver.

“Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the man who has passed away at this distressing time.

“Our investigation is very much ongoing and we would ask anyone who was driving or in the area at the time the collision took place on May 3 to come forward.
