Cyclist dies after car crashed into group

9:30 pm on 3 July 2013

A cyclist hit by a car near Hamilton earlier in the week has died.

Craig Goulsbro was critically injured when a car crashed into about 14 cyclists on Puketaha Road about 6.20pm on Monday.

The 49-year-old father of one died in Waikato Hospital on Wednesday afternoon.

Police earlier said it appeared that a lack of visibility, along with the driver not allowing sufficient space to overtake, played a part in the crash.

Three other riders were taken to hospital with moderate injuries.
