The Independent Police Complaints Commission is appealing for witnesses to assist its investigation one week on from a fatal collision in Purley-on-Thames. Last Thursday night a collision occurred on the A329 in Purley-on-Thames, between a black BMW and two cyclists, who died of their injuries.
The IPCC’s independent investigation is examining how police responded in the short time period of less than two minutes between the sighting of the BMW and the fatal collision. The investigation will consider whether police actions had any effect on the events that followed.
Investigators will be in the Purley Rise and Pangbourne areas this evening, carrying out house-to-house enquiries and appealing for any witnesses who may have seen the events unfold.
I would like to offer my condolences to the families of the two men at this very difficult time. As police officers were in the vicinity and sighted the BMW very shortly before the collision, we will be investigating how the police responded to the sighting and whether their actions had any effect on the events that followed. I would urge anyone who saw anything that may assist with our investigation to come forward.”
