Police say the Tesla collided with a private hire vehicle and a separate bicycle in Great Eastern Street.
A 40-year-old male cyclist was treated at the scene before being taken to hospital where he remained for more than a month in a critical condition. He died from his injuries on September 19. The man’s family have been made aware.
