Family and friends have paid tribute to 35 year-old Lucy John who died when her bicycle was involved in a collision with a black Honda Civic on the A48 near Laleston on Sunday (16 October).
South Wales Police say they’re continuing to investigate the fatal road traffic collision which occurred on the A48 near the roundabout at Laleston heading towards Stormy Down at around 9.10am on Sunday, 16 October.
An appeal for any potential witnesses is continuing.
Her family have paid the following tribute to her:
“It is with much pain and great sadness that we as a family must announce the loss of the beating heart at the centre of our family universe – Lucy John (nee Chilcott).
“Lucy John was painfully taken away from us whilst doing what she loved and what helped fuel the energy of what was the brightest life.
“On Sunday morning, whilst cycling on her road bike that she loved and was so proud to finally be able to afford, she was involved in a collision with a motor vehicle between Laleston and Stormy Down on the A48. Unfortunately, the extent of her injuries was such that she passed away at the scene.
“Lucy was an enormously loved mum, wife, daughter, sister, granddaughter, cousin, auntie, niece, triathlete, CrossFit athlete, work colleague and friend to many many people across the local community. She was a giant shining beacon of energy, positivity with a passionate zest for life, not just for herself but all around her.
“The outpouring of love and support from all who knew her, both far and wide is a great source of comfort to all of her family at this painful time.
“Our special thanks must go out to her CrossFit family (CrossFit Pen Y Bont), triathlete family (Pen Y Bont Tri Club) and cycling family (Tondu Wheelers) all of whom have been there for her and are supporting us now, much love to you all.
“Due to the nature of the incident the normal process of saying goodbye to Lucy is going to be a bit more difficult as the full investigation takes its course. Once there is detail available to pass on to everyone with regard to any arrangements, they will be passed out so everyone will have a chance to pay their respects and say goodbye.
“Please keep your loved ones close and cherish every moment you have with them.
“Love and thanks to you all for your support, from her mum and dad – Sharon and Nigel, the apple of her eye – her son Caden, her loving husband – Evan, her inseparable brother and sister – Heather and Jason, her loving second parents – step mum Angela and mother and father-in-law Jayne and Huw, her doting grandmother Ann.
“Lucy also had an extensive wider family with whom she was greatly loved and will be sorely missed.”
Officers say they would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision or who may have any dash-cam footage of the incident or who witnessed the manner of driving of the Honda prior to the collision.
South Wales Police say they are not looking for anyone else in connection to this incident, and the driver remained at the scene to assist officers. The investigation is ongoing.
