A cyclist witness could prove vital to police investigating a fatal crash between a Tesla and another cyclist in Shoreditch.

The crash between a Tesla, a private hire vehicle and a cyclist took place in Great Eastern Street early in the evening of August 14 last year.

The cyclist, a 40-year-old man, was treated at the scene before being rushed to hospital in a critical condition. He subsequently died from his injuries on September 19.

The man’s family are aware and are being supported by specialist officers.

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

He has been released from police custody under investigation pending further enquiries.

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

Investigating detectives have now released an image of a cyclist they believe interacted with the driver of the Tesla shortly before it was involved in the crash.

This is the second appeal police have released in their search to identify the potential witness.

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 the incident is asked to call police on 101, or to post on 'X' using @MetCC, quoting reference 6021/14Aug23.
