Police launch witness appeal after motorcyclist dies in crash

Police are appealing for witnesses to a fatal collision in a Warwickshire village yesterday (8 January).

Paramedics were called to the A423 Banbury Road in Wormleighton shortly before 5.15pm after reports of a crash, which involved a black Mitsubishi Outlander and a black Honda motorbike.

Despite the best efforts of bystanders and ambulance crews, nothing could be done to save the life of the motorcyclist - a man in his 50s.

His next of kin have been informed.

The driver of the car, a woman in her 40s, suffered minor injuries.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: "The motorcyclist, a man, was being given CPR by a nurse who was passing the scene and stopped to help.

"Ambulance crews took over resuscitation efforts and worked as a team to administer advanced life support to the man. Sadly, he couldn’t be saved and was confirmed deceased on scene a short time later.

“The car driver, a woman, was out of the vehicle and was given treatment on scene for minor injuries. She didn’t require hospital treatment.”

Officers are keen to speak with anyone who witnessed the crash or has any dashcam footage of the incident.

You can get in touch by calling Warwickshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 310 of Tuesday, 8 January.
