Police appeal for dashcam footage after a man is thrown from motorcycle

Police are appealing for dashcam footage after a man was thrown from a motorcycle in Ashton-under-Lyne.
At 8.05pm on Saturday 17 February 2018, a silver Ford KA was travelling along Ladbrooke Road, approaching the junction with Union Road.
As the car began to turn right into Union Road, it was involved in a collision with an orange-coloured off-road Honda motorcycle that had come from the Curzon Road direction.
The impact of the collision caused the rider of the motorcycle, a 19-year-old man, to be projected along the carriageway, where he then collided with the rear of a parked black Nissan Qashqai.
He was taken to hospital with number of serious injuries where he remains in a critical condition.
Enquiries are ongoing and no arrests have been made.
Police Sergeant Brian Orr of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “As we continue with our enquiries, our thoughts are with the man and his family as he remains in hospital.
“It wasn’t particularly busy in the area but there may have been people that saw what happened and haven’t yet got in touch with us.
“We are specifically interested in reviewing dashcam footage of the collision and the events leading up to it so if your vehicle is fitted with it or you have other information that will help us, please call us as soon as possible.”
Anyone with information should contact GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0161 856 4741 quoting reference number 1970 of 17/02/18 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
