    Seine-et-Marne: who saw the accident that claimed the life of a cyclist?

    A call for witnesses is launched by the gendarmes after the accident which cost the life of a cyclist this Friday around 7 am in Marchémoret on the departmental road 401.

    That morning, when the day had not yet risen, several motorists alerted the emergency services after the discovery of the lifeless body of a cyclist near the road. The victim has obviously just been struck by a vehicle traveling in the direction Dammartin-en-Goële – Saint-Soupplets and the driver did not stop. The shock was so violent that the victim and his red and black Giant mountain bike were thrown into a field several meters from the asphalt.

    Immediately alerted, the gendarmes of the company of Meaux and their colleagues of the criminal identification cell of Melun investigations launched investigations.

    Identify the victim and the driver of the fleeing vehicle

    Without identity documents on him, the cyclist is a man aged 50 to 55, of slim build, measuring approximately 1.70 m. Brown hair, he wore a short salt and pepper beard on his chin. On the day of the drama, he was dressed in black jogging pants and a black fleece jacket, as well as high-top Lacoste sneakers in a brown color. He was not wearing a neon waistcoat to stand out in the early morning darkness. Particular point: the victim had had two fingers amputated (the index and middle fingers of the right hand) before the accident.

    Anyone who has witnessed these facts or who is likely to provide useful information to the current investigation is invited to contact the Meaux research brigade at

    Calls for witnesses also encourage drivers responsible for accidents to report to the gendarmes. It happened after a fatal accident between Rebais and Bellot on the D 222 on July 6. The victim was also a cyclist, a 59-year-old Dutch man.
