Po­lice in­ves­ti­gate fa­tal col­li­sion

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

AN EL­DERLY mo­tor­cy­clist was killed in a road ac­ci­dent on Sun­day (June 21) fol­low­ing a col­li­sion with a car.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened just be­fore noon on the A413 Amer­sham Road, be­tween Chal­font St Peter and Chal­font St Giles. The rider of the mo­tor­cy­cle, a man in his 70s, died at the scene af­ter his blue Honda mo­tor­bike was in col­li­sion with a white Ford Fi­esta.

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for any­one with in­for­ma­tion to call 101 and speak to PC James Lovell from the Se­ri­ous Col­li­sion In­ves­ti­ga­tion Unit at Three Mile Cross.

They are par­tic­u­larly keen to speak to a cy­clist who may have in­for­ma­tion that could help po­lice with their in­ves­ti­ga­tion. On Tues­day a soli­tary bou­quet of flow­ers had been placed at the scene. As the Bucks Advertiser went to press, the mo­tor­cy­clist had not been iden­ti­fied.

A Trans­port for Bucks spokesman said the area where the ac­ci­dent oc­curred was not known to be an ac­ci­dent blackspot.

The spokesman said: “Trans­port for Buck­ing­hamshire does not cur­rently have any plans to carry out work on this stretch of road. There were no re­ported in­jury col­li­sions in the last five years within 150m in ei­ther di­rec­tion of the re­cent fatality. A site visit with Thames Val­ley Po­lice is due to be car­ried out with a view to de­ter­min­ing whether the high­way en­vi­ron­ment was in any way con­trib­u­tory to the col­li­sion.

“How­ever, it is im­por­tant that we await the re­sults of the full po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion, to es­tab­lish what fac­tors may have been in­volved, be­fore we con­sider what long term en­gi­neer­ing mea­sures, if any, need to be taken.”
