On Saturday 23rd January 2016, at 8.27pm, a collision between car and a motorcycle occurred in Burnham in which the motorcyclist was injured. The driver of the car failed to stop at the scene.
The collision occurred at the junction of Sandringham Court and Burnham Lane, Burnham.
A red 124cc Honda motorcycle was waiting to turn out of Sandringham Court when a dark coloured car (similar to an ‘old style’ Vauxhall Astra) turned into Sandringham Court and collided with the motorcycle.
The rider of the motorcycle, a local 24 year old man, was thrown from his motorcycle causing fractures to both his wrists requiring hospital treatment.
The driver of the car did a U-turn in Sandringham Court and drove off in the direction of Burnham without stopping or checking on the condition of the motorcyclist.
The motorcycle sustained significant damage in the collision and it is also likely that the car would have suffered damage too.
Thames Valley Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident or thinks they may have seen the car involved in this collision to call 101 and speak to PC Reece.
