Police are appealing for witnesses following a serious collision involving a motorcycle in Basildon last night, Tuesday, August 3.
A blue Yamaha motorcycle heading away from the town left Uppermayne at about 8.35pm and the rider, 18 from Hutton, sustained life threatening injuries.
He was taken to the Royal London Hospital by ambulance and the road was closed between the Uppermayne and Roundacre roundabouts until 2.15am this morning, Wednesday, to allow the police investigation.
We are appealing for any witnesses to the collision or the pre-incident movement of the bike. We are looking to trace a number of people who stopped immediately behind the motorbike and helped the rider until paramedics arrived. We especially want to hear from a man who was driving a black car with a female passenger who may have seen the collision happen.
Witnesses are asked to contact Pc Darrin Lee at the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 101 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
