The IPCC renews its appeal for witnesses to assist its investigation into police actions just over one month on from a collision in Purley-on-Thames, in which two cyclists died. Kris Jarvis and John Morland died following a collision with a black BMW on the A329 Purley Rise on 13 February 2014.
Officers in a marked 4x4 vehicle sighted the BMW in Pangbourne shortly before the fatal collision, and following a referral from Thames Valley Police, the IPCC decided to conduct an independent investigation.
The IPCC has considered initial accounts from police officers, and examined police radio transmissions. IPCC investigators will be taking statements from several witnesses who responded to last month’s appeal, and interviewing the relevant officers from Thames Valley Police.
Investigators are appealing for anyone who is yet to speak with the IPCC, and saw either the police vehicle or black BMW on the A329 between Pangbourne and Purley-on-Thames, in the few minutes leading up to the collision, to contact them on 0800 096 9071, or email email@example.com
