Fatal collision between motorcyclist and a child in Abbey Lane Leicester

Abbey Lane Leicester

Detectives from the force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) are appealing for motorists with dashcams to come forward following a fatal collision in Abbey Lane this evening (Wednesday 20 July).

Shortly before 8pm, a report was received that a motorcycle – a black Yahama YZF 125 – had collided with a child on the city-bound carriageway, close to the junction with Hobson Road.

The motorcyclist – a man – was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham, but died as a result of his injuries. The child suffered injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening or life-changing. Road closures remain in place in the area while officers carry out further enquiries.

Detective Sergeant Ed Des-Chanelle, from the SCIU, said: “While our investigation is very much in the early stages, I would ask any motorists who were in the area at the time and have a dashcam in their vehicle to come forward.

“Any footage you’re able to provide could help and I would also like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or saw the motorcycle beforehand.”

You can pass on information by visiting and quoting incident 607 of 20 July.
