Appeal for information after motorcyclist dies in Northfield

Officers from our serious collision investigation unit, are appealing for information after a motorcyclist died after hitting a road sign on Sir Herbert Austin Way, Northfield this morning (25 September). 
We were alerted by ambulance colleagues shortly before 5am, as they came across the seriously injured man. 
The 30-year-old man was rushed to hospital, but he suffered serious injuries and sadly nothing could be done to save him and he was pronounced dead hours later. 
The crossroads are currently closed at the junction of Bell Hill and Bell Cross, while officers conduct a thorough investigation. 
Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes, from our serious collision investigation unit, said, “Our thoughts go out to this man’s family and friends who are being supported by specialist officers during this difficult time. 
“He was riding a red Honda CBR 600 and we are asking anyone who may have dash cam of the incident to contact us or anyone who was in the area at the time who may have seen or heard anything. 
“At this stage we do not believe any other vehicles to have been involved in this tragic incident, however we need to speak to any witnesses to determine how this man lost his life this morning. 
“The road is due to be closed for most of the morning, and we thank motorists for their patience as we carry out our investigation.”
