This appeared on the local BBC News website


23 December 2018


A cyclist has died in a collision with a Porsche in a country lane.

The 51-year-old man was in collision with a Porsche Boxster travelling in the opposite direction, just before 12:00 GMT on Saturday in Eastcote Lane, Solihull.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and his family have been informed.

A 52-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and has since been released. Investigations are ongoing.

Det Sgt Paul Hughes from West Midlands Police said: "This is an extremely tragic incident for all involved," and has appealed for anyone with relevant dash-cam footage to get in touch.


Tragically the rider involved is a member of our club - Tony Satterthwaite.

Although I didn't know Tony my thoughts and prayers go to his family at this terrible time for them.

RIP Tony

That's terrible. My wife and I were overtaken on Friday Lane by the ambulance that attended - didn't realise it was for Tony. He will be missed at the MC&AC time trials next year. RIP mate.

Had read this news on BBC yesterday and had feared it may have been a club member.
This is a dreadful tragedy. Thank you for posting the information Phil.
Condolence to Tony's family.
