Police are trying to trace a potential witness after a cyclist died after a crash with a Tesla and a private hire vehicle.

The 40-year-old man died on September 19 from injuries sustained during a crash in Shoreditch a month earlier.

Officers were called to Great Eastern Street just before 6pm on August 14 after a Tesla was involved in a crash with a private hire vehicle and a cyclist.

The 40-year-old cyclist was treated at the scene before being rushed to hospital, where he died five weeks later.

The man’s family are aware and continue to be supported by specialist officers.

The driver of the Tesla, a 44-year-old man, was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving.

He was taken into police custody and is currently released under investigation pending further police enquiries.

The driver of the private hire vehicle sustained minor injuries in the crash.

Police have now released an image of another cyclist who they believe interacted with the driver of the Tesla car shortly before the fatal crash.

Detective Constable Phil Stokes of the Met’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “We believe that the cyclist pictured can assist with our investigation and may have vital information.

“If you know him, or if you are him, please do get in touch.”

Anyone with information or dashcam footage relating to this incident is asked to contact police on 101, or via @MetCC on X, quoting reference 6021/14Aug.
