South Wales Police is investigating a fatal road traffic collision, which happened at around 9.10am this morning, on the A48 near the roundabout at Laleston heading towards Stormy Down.
A black Honda Civic was in collision with a bicycle and, despite the best efforts of members of the public and emergency services, the cyclist, a 35-year-old woman from Bridgend, was taken to hospital where she later died from her injuries.
DC Alun Efstathiou said:
“I want to thank those members of the public who assisted at the scene and to the local community for their patience while the road was closed while we carried out our investigations.
“My thoughts are with the deceased’s family at this time.
“We would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision or who may have any dash-cam footage of the incident or who witnessed the manner of driving of the Honda prior to the collision.”
