Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal road traffic collision today (Monday 26 December) in Birmingham.
A motorcyclist was travelling away from the Fort Dunlop Island on the Fort Parkway towards Castle Vale at around midday, when it is believed he was in collision with a barrier.
The 39-year-old rider, a man from Castle Bromwich, was taken to hospital but sadly died of his injuries.
His family have been told and are being supported by specially trained liaison officers. He is not being named at this stage.
The road was closed for some time following the collision.
PC Karl Davies from the force’s collision investigation unit, said: “The collision took place earlier today near to the Fort Dunlop Shopping Centre. The motorcyclist was riding together with another motorcyclist, when we believe he collided with a barrier. The rider was taken to hospital, but despite valiant efforts by medical staff, tragically he died a short time later. I am appealing for anyone who may have seen the collision to contact police on 101.”
