A CYCLIST has died after suffering life-threatening injuries after his bike and Mercedes minibus collided.
The man, 44, was rushed to hospital after the horror collision in Gateshead on Wednesday May 3.
But Northumbria Police have confirmed the 44-year-old man died on Sunday.
The collision occurred between a Mercedes minibus and a man on a bicycle on the A694 Lockhaugh Road.
The man's family have been informed and police are appealing to anyone who may have information on the collision.
Sergeant Michael Parnaby, of Northumbria Police’s Motor Patrols department, said: “This is an incredibly sad update and one which we hoped we would not have to deliver.
“Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the man who has passed away at this distressing time.
“Our investigation is very much ongoing and we would ask anyone who was driving or in the area at the time the collision took place on May 3 to come forward.
“Your dashcam footage or information, no matter how small, could assist us in establishing exactly what happened.”
