Whitstable; Tribute To Cyclist
The family of a cyclist who died following a collision on the A2990 Old Thanet Way has issued a tribute as officers continue to appeal for information.
Cyclist Christian Smith, from Boughton Aluph, died after his bicycle was reported to have been in a collision with a blue Peugeot 206 near Chestfield, Whitstable, at 4.04am, on Saturday 22 March.
Taxi driver might have information
Officers are particularly keen to hear from the driver of a taxi that is thought to have been in the area at the time of the collision and might be able to help officers with their enquiries.
Jamie Woodhams, of the Serious Collision Investigation Unit at Kent Police, said: "Information has come to light regarding a taxi, which is believed to have passed the scene shortly after the collision travelling from the Chestfield/Swalecliffe roundabout towards Whitstable.
"I do not believe this driver was involved in the collision but I believe he or she could hold valuable information for us and I'd urge the driver to contact me as soon as possible."
Two people have been arrested in connection with the collision.
A 19-year-old man, from the Herne Bay area, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He has been bailed pending further investigation until 27 July.
An 18-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and driving with excess breath alcohol. She has been bailed pending further investigation until 26 July.
Christian's family has issued the following tribute: "Even in the depths of our grief we are moved beyond belief at the outpouring of love and support that has been shown by so many, especially as most didn't even know Christian. His story has touched cyclists and mental health sufferers, families and individuals across the world.
"He is a husband, father, son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend who will always be so dearly loved and remembered.
"We are all so proud of everything that he has achieved. His death was tragic and we pray that no one else has to suffer similar sorrow and heartache. Christian had a great sense of humour, he loved life, his family and was a dedicated cyclist."
Anybody with information who has not yet spoken to police is asked to call PC Woodhams on 01622 798538.
