Flow­ers left for mo­tor­cy­clist

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

Flow­ers of re­mem­brance have been left in trib­ute to a mo­tor­cy­clist who died last week af­ter a fa­tal col­li­sion.

Kevin Good­child (60), who lived in Dogsthorpe, was rid­ing his grey Pi­ag­gio mo­tor­cy­cle in Gun­thorpe Road at about 3.40pm last Friday when for un­known rea­sons the mo­tor­cy­cle left the car­riage­way and col­lided with a bus shel­ter.

No other ve­hi­cle was in­volved in the col­li­sion.

Po­lice, the East of Eng­land Am­bu­lance Ser­vice and the Mag­pas air am­bu­lance all at­tended the in­ci­dent, how­ever, sadly Kevin’s in­juries proved fa­tal.

His next of kin has been in­formed.

Fol­low­ing the col­li­sion, flow­ers were left by the bus shel­ter, and a mes­sage in a bou­quet read: “RIP Kevin from all the fam­ily.”

A spokesman for The East of Eng­land Am­bu­lance Ser­vice said on Friday: “An am­bu­lance crew, rapid re­sponse ve­hi­cle, am­bu­lance of­fi­cer and Mag­pas air am­bu­lance were dis­patched.

“They treated a man who was not breath­ing and in car­diac ar­rest.

“Fol­low­ing treat­ment at the scene he was re­sus­ci­tated and taken by land am­bu­lance to Peter­bor­ough City Hos­pi­tal in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion.”

Gun­thorpe Road was closed for around three hours last Friday to al­low the emer­gency ser­vices to work at the scene.

The road was then re­opened at ap­prox­i­mately 6.40pm.
