Appeal after motorcyclist dies in collision near Donington Park

Detectives are appealing for dashcam footage following a fatal collision near Donington Park yesterday (Thursday 29 June).

It happened in Melbourne Road, close to the junction with Slade Lane, shortly before 5pm and involved a white Nissan MPV and a black KTM Duke motorcycle.

Both vehicles collided, before the motorcycle then struck a wall. The rider – a man in his 30s – was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 55-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and driving a motor vehicle with a proportion of a specified controlled drug above the specified limit. He has since been released under investigation.

Detective Constable Charlotte Wright, from the force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU), said: “Our investigation into this incident is continuing and I’d like to speak to anyone who was in the area and witnessed the collision but has not yet contacted police.
