An ambulance and a paramedic area support officer were sent to the scene.

An ambulance arrived on scene eight minutes after the initial call. Sadly, it was immediately obvious that there was nothing that could be done to save the rider.

The elderly man driving the car was assessed at the scene but had no obvious injuries and was discharged on scene.
