Police appeal on death of motorcyclist

By Mark Pritchett in Local People

POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a motorcyclist died following a road traffic collision near Wiveliscombe.

The incident happened at 1.37pm on Thursday, March 30, on the B3227 at Slape Moor Bridge.

A Toyota Auris was travelling towards Wiveliscombe when it stopped to turn right into Manor Grange, where an Audi A4 estate was waiting to pull out of the junction.

A BMW motorcycle being ridden away from the town approached the junction and was in collision with the Toyota and then collided with the Audi.

The male motorcyclist was seriously injured and was airlifted to Southmead Hospital in Bristol. He died on Thursday last week.

Police would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time who may be able to help their investigation.

Anyone who can help should call the collision investigation unit on 101, quoting collision reference CI/58/17.
