One cyclist died and another one was injured in a crash with HGV in Waresley

ONE CYCLIST has died and another one has been injured in a crash involving an HGV.

The incident happened at 11am this morning at the junction of the A449 and Manor Lane in Waresley.

A police vehicle was only seconds away and attended, along with an off-duty paramedic and the crew of a West Midlands Ambulance Service non-emergency patient transport vehicle which stopped to provide assistance.

Two ambulances, two paramedic officers and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a doctor and critical care paramedic on board were sent to the scene.

But despite all their efforts they were unable to save the man, who was in his 60s and from Brierley Hill.

He was confirmed dead at the scene.

The second cyclist, from Hagley, was treated at the scene before being taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital for further assessment and continued treatment.

The lorry driver was uninjured.

Both carriageways were closed for some time, but are now reopen.

A 48-year-old-man from Halesowen has been arrested for causing death by dangerous driving.

Police said investigations were ongoing and officers were keen to speak with anyone who saw the incident, was in the area at the time, or who has dashcam footage of the collision.

Witnesses or anyone with any information should call police on 101
