Appeal for witnesses after motorcyclist dies following collision

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.
