A lorry driver from Chelmsford has been arrested after a fatal crash in Kent yesterday (Saturday).

Cyclist Barbara Phipps, 73, from Lynsted, Kent, was killed following the collision with an HGV on the A12 London Road in Teynham at 10.15am.

Senior investigating officer Sergeant Hannah Brown said: “The HGV and the cyclist were both heading towards Sittingbourne when the collision occurred opposite the Swan pub.

“We have already spoken to a number of witnesses but are keen to speak to anyone else who saw the incident and has yet to speak to us, or who saw the cyclist or the HGV prior to the collision.”

The lorry driver, aged 58, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop.

He has been bailed until July 5 while enquiries continue.
