Biker dies following car crash

A motorcyclist who was involved in a car crash has died.

The 21-year-old was rushed to hospital following the collision in Lea Bridge Road, Waltham Forest.

Police attended the scene just before 8pm on October 14 and the biker was rushed to hospital, but he died about an hour later.

His next-of-kin have been informed and formal identification and a post-mortem examination will be scheduled in due course.

The driver of the black Volkswagen Sirocco involved did not stop at the scene, and officers are hoping to trace it.

It is likely that the vehicle would be damaged in the crash and may have been abandoned.

Anyone who witnessed the collision or recognises the description of the car should call the serious collision investigation unit on 020 8597 4874 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
