Road Traffic Collision on the A14 at Creeting St Mary
Copdock: Police Name Cyclist Killed In Crash
Police have named a cyclist who died after a collision in Copdock.
Police were called to the scene of the crash along the southbound carriageway of the Old London Road in Copdock at around 2.30pm on Thursday.
A blue Citroen CV car had hit a man on a bike.
The cyclist, 69-year-old Colin Crowther from Ipswich, was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken by ambulance to Ipswich Hospital where he later died.
His family have issued the following tribute:
Colin Crowther, a retired planning officer, is survived by his wife, a brother, two children, several grandchildren and great grandchildren, nieces and as of December a great nephew.
Although 69 years old, Colin was a keen walker, climber and cyclist, who could be seen regularly out and about on his new racing bike.
Colin was a quiet private man, however his kind, thoughtful and considerate presence was welcomed by neighbours, former work colleagues together with his family and friends.
His sudden absence from the community will be sorely felt, particularly by his two granddaughters who idolised their "Grandpop".
Officers have told Heart there will now be a full collision investigation. They want to hear from anyone who was in the area who saw the cycle and car travelling along Old London Road.
Calls should be made to PC Allie Cotton at the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101.
