THE inquest into the death of a 16-year-old cyclist will continue in Oxford today.

Thomas Early was killed in a car crash on November 20 while cycling on the B4449 (Stanton Harcourt Road) near Eynsham.

When the inquest was opened at the coroner's court last year, the cause of death was recorded as 'traumatic brain injury'.

Thomas had been cycling between his home village and Witney, when he was struck by a blue Hyundai Kona at about 9.35pm.

The car driver stopped at the scene and police shut part of the road.

Thomas was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford and pronounced dead at 8.38am on November 21.

The inquest is expected to take around two hours and will be completed today.
