POLICE have today released an appeal to trace witnesses to the death of a 23-year-old motorcyclist who died following a collision with a car in Chorley.

The incident occurred on Wednesday 29th January at 4pm, two 125cc motorbikes were being ridden along Bolton Road in the direction of Chorley.

Police have confirmed to Breaking News that the first motorbike has overtaken two slow moving vehicles close to Albany Academy.

When the second motorcyclist attempted the overtake he lost control of the motorbike and collided head-on with an oncoming Fiat Panda.

The 25 year old rider was rushed to the Royal Preston hospital with multiple injuries and died a short time later.

Sergeant Finn Quainton from the Force Road Policing Unit told Breaking News: “An investigation is underway into the circumstances of the collision but I would appeal to any witnesses to the collision to contact Lancashire Police on 101.”

Bolton Road was closed for three and a half hours for an investigation to take place.
