A Bramley motorcyclist who died in a road traffic collision on the A647 Stanningley Road has been named as 30-year-old Christopher Maidens.  

Mr Maidens suffered serious injuries and he was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Emergency services were called at around 6.10pm on Sunday, 5 February, to the incident.

A blue and white Suzuki GSXR 750 motorcycle was travelling along Stanningley Road away from the city centre, when it collided with a grey Volvo S40 which was crossing Stanningley Road to turn into Armley Grange Drive. 

Sergeant Mathew Tunney, of the West Yorkshire Police Major Collision Enquiry Team, said:

“We are keen to hear from anyone who witnessed this incident or who may have seen either the Suzuki motorbike or the Volvo driving in the area at around this time. 

“Officers are also trying to establish Christopher’s whereabouts before the collision took place so we would ask anyone he was with on Sunday to please get in contact.” 

The driver of the Volvo stopped at the scene and has assisted police with their enquiries. 

Anyone with any information is asked to contact PC 2718 Fiona Hoodless on 101 quoting log 1310 of 05/02.
