Police are appealing for information.
Detectives from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) are appealing for motorists with dashcams to come forward following a fatal collision in Abbey Lane in Leicester on Wednesday 20 July.
Shortly before 8pm, a report was received that a motorcycle – a black Yahama YZF 125 – had collided with a child on the city-bound carriageway, close to the junction with Hobson Road.
The motorcyclist – a man – was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham, but died as a result of his injuries. The child suffered injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening or life-changing. Road closures remain in place in the area while officers carry out further enquiries.
Detective Sergeant Ed Des-Chanelle, from the SCIU, said: “While our investigation is very much in the early stages, I would ask any motorists who were in the area at the time and have a dashcam in their vehicle to come forward.
“Any footage you’re able to provide could help and I would also like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or saw the motorcycle beforehand.”
