Apparently he rode with both front and rear facing cameras.

The motorist was interviewed and released - no charges laid.

It is always sad to hear that a cyclist has died unnecessarily.
Media articles suggest that Cameron agitated for safe cycling conditions, produced videos of drivers breaching road rules, but police rarely took action. 

One article stated the vehicle was a ute, as though police do have info.
Ross, I did not read that the police interviewed the driver, but possibly in another article.
