Crewe biker, 58, dies after crash on A500

Police are appealing for witnesses after a biker died following a smash on the A500 through South Cheshire. Emergency services were called out to the scene in Weston where a motorbike had 'collided with road furniture'.

The crash, which occurred at around 6.10pm on Saturday (May 25), had left the A500 'blocked in both directions'. Today Cheshire Police says the motorcyclist, a 58-year-old man, of Crewe, was taken to hospital with 'serious injuries' - and has sadly, since died.

Now officers are appealing for anyone with information to the crash, which took place near to the Meremoor Moss roundabout, which sits at the junction with the A500 and A531. The motorbike involved was an orange Kawasaki.

Sergeant Russell Sime said: "We know there will have been plenty of other motorists in the area at the time of the incident so we are asking that any witnesses please contact us. The same goes for anyone who may have any dashcam footage of what happened."

Witnesses should call the Cheshire force on 101 and quote IML-1832224. Information can also be provided online here.
