Police have named a man who sadly died after being hit by a car in Middlesbrough at the weekend.
37-year-old Carl Eland, who was a father, from the North Ormesby area, sadly passed away after he and a 24-year-old woman, were hit by a white Vauxhall Insignia as they cycled along Homerton Road and Gribdale Road around 9:05pm on Saturday.
Detectives have launched a murder investigation, after what they believe to be a deliberate and targeted act, and Mr Eland's family are being supported by specially trained officers.
The white Vauxhall Insignia was later found nearby; abandoned with severe fire damage.
Three men arrested in connection with the incident have been released on police bail, whilst enquiries continue.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.
