Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses after a road traffic collision in Leeds on Wednesday 27 May.

The incident happened on Harewood Avenue at its junction with Moor Lane, Leeds at 08.20am and involved a cyclist and a Volkswagen Golf.

Both vehicles were travelling along Harewood Avenue (A659) from the direction of Harewood and towards Wetherby when they were in collision.

As a result of the incident the male cyclist – 57 year old Leeds man Adrian Hornby was left with serious head injuries and taken to hospital. He died on Sunday 7 June.

 

The family of Mr Hornby have released a tribute to him and a photograph of him through the police.

They said:

“Adrian had a formidable mind, and was kind and compassionate. He worked for an American software company across the world and was a keen Bridge player, underwater hockey enthusiast and was chairman of the Harrogate Model Flying Club.

“He was loved and cherished by his wife and twin sons, and was in his element when with his family. He has been stolen from us far too early and we are heartbroken and cannot imagine life without him; the gap will be unfathomable.”

Detective Sergeant Fiona Allan of the Major Collision Enquiry Team, said:

“The death of Adrian has clearly had a profound impact on his family and we are urging anyone who witnessed the collision who hasn’t come forward yet to do so.
