A 53-year-old cyclist was killed early on Sunday evening as the result of a traffic accident which took place on the Manacor to Felanitx road near the 1.2 kilometre mark.

Local Police reported that the tragedy had happened just before 7pm when for reasons which are still being investigated, the cyclist was involved in a collision with a car.

The Police said that Pedro Sitges Adrover, who lived on a country estate on the outskirts of Manacor was heading towards the cemetery road when the driver of a Renault Clio didn't spot him in time and ran him down.

Initial assessments are that the cyclist didn't have adequate lighting on his bicycle.
