A cyclist has died after a suspected rush hour hit and run.

Peter McGreal, 44, of St John’s Road, Walthamstow was cycling in Pritchards Road, Haggerston, when he was in collision with a tipper lorry at the junction with Hackney Road at 8.30am on June 21.

He was taken to hospital in a critical condition and died on Saturday (June 25).

The yellow lorry did not stop at the scene but was traced later the same day.

The driver, a man in his 50s, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

He has been bailed under September 12, pending further enquiries.

Detective Constable Nick Burt, of the Road Death Investigation Unit, said: "This collision happened in the middle of rush hour so there would have been numerous people in the vicinity of Hackney Road and Pritchard Road.

“If you saw the collision, or the events leading up to the collision, please contact us."

Anyone who witnessed the collision, or can assist with the investigation, is asked to contact the witness line on 020 8597 4874.
