Police are appealing for information after a motorcyclist was seriously injured after taking evasive action to avoid hitting a car in Armley.

The Safer Roads and Neighbourhood Support Team (East) would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident which took place on Heights Drive in Armley on Monday, May 1.

It occurred at about 2.35pm after a black Suzuki motorcycle hit a wall while turning right from Heights Lane onto Heights Way.

Officers believe the rider had taken evasive action while trying to make the turn to avoid a black VW Golf which was heading towards it after making an overtaking manoeuvre on the other side of the road.

The bike rider, a 21-year-old man, suffered serious leg injuries and was taken to Leeds General Infirmary.

The VW Golf did not stop at the scene.

PC Sarah Miller of SRANS, East, said:

“We are investigating this incident and would very much like to speak to anyone who saw what happened or who saw either vehicle just before the collision.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Miller on 101, referencing log 1048 of 01/05/2017.
