The scene of a truck-versus-cycle accident in Papamoa that left 14-year-old Hugo Shaw dead.

Police have released the name of the teenager who died after a crash between a cyclist and a rubbish truck in Papamoa Beach, Tauranga.

He was 14-year-old Hugo Shaw, from Cambridge.

The crash happened at 2.50 pm on Tuesday, at the intersection of Sandhurst Dr and Papamoa Beach Rd.

 

On Wednesday, floral tributes had been left at the curbside where the teenager was killed.

Residents in the Tauranga suburb said they were left shocked at the sound of the crash.

Bay of Plenty roading police manager Inspector Brent Crowe said investigations into the accident were continuing and police were asking witnesses to come forward.

 

So sad to report this teenager was the eldest son of former harness trainer and prominent driver, Tony Shaw,  who himself had a near fatal accident on the track.     Tony is held in high esteem by all who know him and to suffer such a tragedy hits us all hard.      Tony, all in the harness community send their heartfelt condolences in these tragic circumstances.

RIP Hugo
