Motorcyclist killed in horror crash with BMW X3
A motorcyclist was killed following a crash with a BMW X3 near Tamworth. The biker, who was riding a green Kawasaki, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The smash happened at the junction of Tollgate Lane and the A513 in Comberford on Saturday, May 20. Police and medics, including two air ambulances, were called at around 11.15am.
But nothing could be done to save the biker, who was in his 50s. Police said his family were being supported by specially-trained officers.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We were called to reports of a collision between a car and a motorbike at the junction of Tollgate Lane and the A513 in Comberford at 11.17am on Saturday. Two ambulances, a paramedic officer, the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance attended the scene.
“On arrival we discovered one male patient, the motorcyclist. He was found to be in a critical condition and ambulance staff immediately began providing advanced life support. Sadly, despite their best efforts it became apparent nothing could be done to save him, and he was confirmed dead at the scene.”
Staffordshire Police is now appealing for witnesses to come forward. A force spokesman said: "We are particularly keen to speak to witnesses or those who may have CCTV or dashcam footage of the area at the time."
