after a motorcyclist died after being involved in a road traffic collision in Clitheroe this afternoon, Tuesday 17th December.

The collision took place around 1.40pm on Bolton by Bowland Road when the 47 year old motorcyclist, who is from Adlington (Chorley), was travelling near to Springs Wood towards Sawley when he has been involved in a collision with a Nissan Navara travelling in the opposite direction.

The rider was thrown from his bike and received substantial injuries that sadly proved fatal at the scene. The driver of the car who is from the Wyre area was uninjured.

Sergeant Gareth Hill from the Force Road Policing Unit said: “An investigation is underway but I would appeal to anybody that witnessed this collison or saw the motorcyclist riding his distinctive blue Yamaha YFZ-R1 in the Clitheroe or Bolton by Bowland area prior to the collison to contact police on 101.”

The road was closed for over three hours.
