The driver of a white van who stopped to help after a cyclist was struck by a car is being sought by police.

Matthew McSevney, 43, from Peel, was hit by the car on Poortown Road on 5 October and died later in hospital.

An Isle of Man Police spokesman said the van driver stopped at the scene and warned other road users of the crash by flashing his headlights.

The appeal came as an inquest into Mr McSevney's death was opened and adjourned at Douglas Courthouse.

The court was told the 43-year-old died as a result of "multiple injuries".

Police believe both the car and Mr McSevney were travelling out of the town when the crash occurred.

The force spokesman said no-one had been arrested over the crash and asked anyone with information about what happened to get in touch.
