POLICE are appealing for witnesses and information after a 56-year-old motorcyclist died following a road traffic collision on the B3349 in Odiham.

The incident occurred at around 10.20 am on Sunday, September 20 on the B3349, near the junction with Churchill Avenue.

The black Ducati motorcycle was travelling northbound towards RAF Odiham when it collided with a white Ford Fiesta travelling southbound.

The rider, from Surrey, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The front seat passenger of the Fiesta, a woman in her 80s, was also injured and is currently in hospital, where her injuries are described as serious but stable.

PC Paul Farquharson, from Whitchurch Roads Policing Unit, said: “We are appealing for anyone with information about this collision to come forward and talk to us. Were you travelling along this road or were you in this area this [Sunday] morning? Did you see what happened or did you see any of the vehicles involved?”

“We’re also keen to speak to anyone who may have dash cam footage which could help with our enquiries, including any of motorcycles on this stretch of road prior to the collision.”

Anyone with information or dash cam footage should contact the police by calling 101 and quoting Operation November.

The incident comes less than three weeks after another crash on the same stretch of road, in which a car ended up on its roof.
