Cyclist killed in road collision on charity ride
Christian Smith was struck by a car in the early hours of Saturday morning
A cyclist who was killed in a road traffic accident was taking part in a charity ride for a mental health charity.
Christian Smith, a father-of-three in his 30s, was riding towards Whitstable, Kent, when he was involved in a collision with a blue Peugeot 206 on the A2990 Old Thanet Way, near Chestfield, at around 4am on Saturday.
His family said in a statement: "Christian Smith, of Boughton Aulph in Kent, was killed in the early hours of Saturday morning, while cycling to raise money for the MIND charity.
"Christian leaves a loving wife and three children."
The 18-year-old female driver of the Peugeot was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving and causing death by dangerous driving.
She has been released on police bail pending further inquiries until 26 July.
PC Jamie Woodhams, of the Kent Police Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: "We are continuing to appeal for witnesses to come forward. In particular, we would like to speak to anybody who saw the Peugeot travelling along the road prior to the collision."
