A woman cyclist died following a collision with a car in Napton yesterday (Sunday).

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Holt Lane near to Headlands Farm, shortly before 10.45am and sent an ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived on scene they discovered a cyclist lying in the road following a collision with a car.

“Unfortunately it quickly became apparent that due to the serious injuries suffered in the incident, nothing could be done to save the woman and she was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The driver of the car, a woman believed to be in her 60s, was treated for the effects of shock and discharged on scene whilst a second cyclist, also a woman, did not require medical attention.”
