Police are appealing for witnesses after a 58-year-old cyclist died in a serious road crash on Sunday, December 18.

Allan Smith was struck by a Vauxhall Mokka while cycling around 12.10pm on the A82 slip road to the Erskine Bridge.

He was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow where sadly he later died.

Police said the 83-year-old driver of the car was uninjured.

The road was closed for several hours as crash scene investigators examined the scene.

Sergeant Archie McGuire from Police Scotland’s Road Policing Unit is appealing for any information.

He said: “It’s vital we establish the circumstances of what has happened and I’m appealing to any motorists who were on the A82, either travelling eastbound or westbound, to contact me.

“Also, if you have any dash cam footage, please let us know as this could assist in our investigation. Anyone with any information is asked to call road policing officers either at Dumbarton or Campbeltown Police Offices via the non-emergency number 101.”
