Tribute paid to grandad hit by e-bike in Burnley

The family of a man who died after being hit by an e-bike in Burnley have paid a heartbreaking tribute.

Bart O’Hare (86) died from his injuries following a collision on Accrington Road, at 4.23pm on Friday, March 22.

Officers were called to a report that a Sur-ron style e-bike had collided with pedestrian, Bart (pictured).

An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of an injury road traffic collision. He has since been released on bail while our enquiries continue.

Bart’s family paid tribute to him, saying: “Bart was such a kind and loveable dad, brother and grandad who has been taken away from family and friends in such a tragic manner.

“As a family we would like to thank all the emergency services involved for all their work.

“Bart you will be missed by so many, may you now rest in peace.”

Sergeant Paul McCurrie said: “First and foremost, our thoughts are with Bart’s family at this incredibly sad and distressing time.

“Bart lost his life as a result of this collision, and we are committed to carrying out an extensive investigation.

“The sur-ron e-bike didn’t remain at the scene following the incident, and we are yet to recover it. So, we’re particularly interested in hearing from anyone who may have seen a dark-coloured Sur-ron e-bike, either being ridden or stored, that matches this description.

“If you have any information that could assist our investigation, please contact us on 101 quoting log 0952 of March 22 2024, or email our Serious Collision Investigations Unit on [email protected].”
