A Clunes man has been charged with murder over the hit-and-run death of 60-year-old John Foss on Tuesday morning.

Police allege that Foss, owner of the motorised bicycle business Fosscati Motorised, was killed when he was deliberately run down while cycling on Coolamon Scenic Drive, near Synotts Road, Mullumbimby, at about 10 o’clock on Tuesday morning.

Police say that Foss had been helping out on a rescue of four people at Brunswick Bar on Tuesday morning when he was intentionally run over by a man he knew.

Inspector Greg Jago of Tweed/Byron Local Area Command told media this morning that ‘following information received from community members yesterday, police continued their inquiries and it is now apparent that the bicycle collision… wasn’t an accident as was originally reported. As a result a 53-year-old male has been charged with murder.’

The man will face Lismore Local Court today.
