A woman has died after being hit by an e-bike in London at the end of August.
Sakine Cihan, 56, is believed to be the UK’s first e-bike victim following a suspected hit-and-run.
Cihan, from Dalston, sadly died of her injuries on Wednesday, said Metropolitan police.
She was crossing a road on 28th August when she was hit by a Specialized e-bike.
The man riding the bike fell off in the collision but reportedly left the scene. The bike was later found in Stoke Newington.
The following day, a 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm under section 35 of the 1861 Offences Against the Person Act – “injuring persons by furious driving” – after he contacted police. He has since been released under investigation.
Police have asked for more witnesses to come forward.
