Witness appeal after biker dies in road collision
Collision investigators are appealing for witnesses after a 21-year-old man riding a motorbike struck a car near Adderley Park in Birmingham last night (11 July).
The 21-year-old was travelling along Adderley Road, Saltley, at 6.50pm when his Honda CBR collided with a grey Audi estate.
Paramedics provided emergency first aid at the scene but the biker, from the Small Heath area of the city, was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after the collision.
The car driver, a 35-year-old man, stopped at the scene and provided a negative breath test.
Sergeant Alan Hands from West Midlands Police’s Collision Investigation Unit, said: “This is a shocking collision in which a young man has lost his life; our thoughts are with his family and they are being supported by one of our specialist officers.
“We’re hoping CCTV will shed light on exactly what happened in the build-up to the collision.
“But I’d also appeal to anyone who was near Adderley Park last night and witnessed the collision, or saw the bike or car in the moments before the impact, to get in touch as they could have important information.
“There may also be other motorists who’ve captured the incident on dash-cams and if so I’d ask them to also get in touch."
Witnesses are asked to call the Collision Investigation Unit on 101 quoting log number 2368 from 11 July or email FL.COLLISION_INVEST@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk.
