Teen Hits Man With E-Bike, Leading to Tragic Death

Tragically, a grandfather was killed in Lancashire after being struck by an e-bike. His loved ones have paid homage to the ‘loveable’ guy.

On March 22, 86-year-old Bart O’Hare was involved in a tragic accident on Accrington Road in Burnley.

Mr. O’Hare was brought to the hospital in severe condition but unfortunately passed away. At 4.23 p.m., the Lancashire Police were alerted to a complaint of an e-bike collision involving a pedestrian.

Bart O’Hare was a wonderful father, brother, and grandpa who was tragically stolen from his loved ones, according to a statement from Mr. O’Hare’s family. Everyone in the family expressed gratitude to the first responders who helped.

The charges against an 18-year-old guy include reckless driving that caused significant harm and leaving the scene of a traffic accident resulting in injuries. He is now out on bond while the police investigate.

The police said that they had not yet recovered the e-bike.

Speaking on behalf of the Lancashire Police, Sergeant Paul McCurrie stated that they are particularly interested in hearing from anyone who may have seen a dark-colored Sur-ron e-bike either being ridden or stored.

The police are asking anybody with information to call 101 and reference log 0952 from March 22 or email [email protected].

Sgt. McCurrie said at this sorrowful and painful time, his thoughts are with Bart’s family, and he is dedicated to conducting a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident that resulted in Bart’s death.

A 91-year-old veteran’s family has demanded stricter legislation to punish “selfish” bikers who disobey traffic restrictions following their loved one’s death at the hands of an e-bike rider on the sidewalk.

During the summer of 2018, Jim Blackwood was hit while placing his trash cans outside his Rochester, Kent, house. The 26-year veteran of the British Army was sent to the hospital in a hurry but succumbed to internal injuries three months after arriving.

The biker may only get a “slap on the wrist,” according to his granddaughter Jenni Coleman and daughter Christine White, who claim that the government should change the laws to make cyclists who cause fatalities be punished the same as drivers.
