Cambridge: 16-Year-Old Cyclist Dies Following Crash
A 16-year-old cyclist has been killed, following a crash in Cambridge.
Cambridgeshire Police are investigating the collision, that resulted in the death of the 16 year old girl.
Two cars were also involved.
It happened just before 7pm, on Milton Road, just north of the junction with Birch Close.
The girl, who was from Cambridge, was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital, where she later died.
At the scene a bobble hat circled by chalk lay in the middle of the road outside a pub and a buckled bicycle, with front wicker basket, was on a grass verge.
The accident involved a yellow Peugeot 307 car which had its windscreen smashed and a grey Audi A3 TDI.
Neither driver was injured.
Police now want to speak to anyone who saw what happened.
