Crash investigators believe the bike hit a kerb although why it did remains a puzzle.

“Anyone with information can email CollisionApp[email protected], call the Drivewatch Hotline on 0800 174615 or contact Northamptonshire Police on 101 using incident number: 22000529718.”

Sunday’s crash is now the second fatal incident on the A5 in Northampton in less than 72 hours.

Police are still appealing for witnesses after a woman passenger died and a driver seriously injured when a black Nissan Note was in a collision with a white Jaguar Xe Prestige at the crossroads near Whilton at around 1.40pm on Thursday (September 8).
