PO­LICE have ar­rested a mo­torist and launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion fol­low­ing a fa­tal crash in Uxbridge.

A 50-year-old man from West Dray­ton died after his sil­ver Suzuki motorcycle col­lided with a black Vaux­hall As­tra and a red Ford Fi­esta.

The ac­ci­dent hap­pened on the A4020 Ox­ford Road, in New Den­ham, out­side the KFC restau­rant, at around 12.40pm on Tues­day, Jan­uary 20.

Two am­bu­lance crews, two am­bu­lance of­fi­cers, an emer­gency care prac­ti­tioner and an air am­bu­lance at­tended.

Paramedics fought to save the man, but he was pro­nounced dead at the scene.

His next of kin have been in­formed.

A spokes­woman for South Cen­tral Am­bu­lance Ser­vice NHS Foun­da­tion Trust said there had been no other in­juries.

Po­lice ar­rested the driver of the Vaux­hall As­tra, a 27-year-old man from West Dray­ton, on sus­pi­cion of caus­ing death by dan­ger­ous driv­ing.

Of­fi­cers closed part of the road from the Den­ham Round­about fol­low­ing the ac­ci­dent, caus­ing tail­backs.

Darshi Kirush, team leader at KFC, said some of her col­leagues saw the crash.

She said: “We all went out­side but at that time po­lice came and am­bu­lances also came. Nearly three or four hours they were do­ing emer­gency ser­vice work.

“This is the first time we’ve seen a crash hap­pen. In nearly seven or eight months since we’ve been here it’s the very first time we’ve had an ac­ci­dent.

“It’s re­ally hor­ri­ble. Yes­ter­day we were all cry­ing be­cause we saw that he [the mo­tor­cy­clist] was alive and then he died.”

Ms Kirush said the restau­rant’s CCTV cam­eras had not cap­tured the col­li­sion.

Of­fi­cers are ap­peal­ing for any­one who ei­ther wit­nessed the crash or saw any of the three ve­hi­cles be­fore­hand to come for­ward.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call 101, quot­ing URN 569. Al­ter­na­tively, call the char­ity Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111, or visit crimestop­per­
