Second death on road near Leamington

A MAN has died after being involved in a crash near Bishops Tachbrook, just two days after another person died on the same road.

The man had been riding a red Honda motorcycle, which was in collision with a blue Scania lorry on Banbury Road at Greys Mallory, at around 8.20am this morning (Monday).

An ambulance and the air ambulance were called to the scene, where they took over resuscitation attempts and carried out advanced life support. But the man was confirmed dead at the scene.

The driver of the lorry was treated for shock but did not suffer injuries.

On Saturday a driver died on the same road in Ashorne after the car they were travelling in crashed into a tree and caught fire.

Anyone who witnessed either incident or saw any of the vehicles involved before the collisions occurred should call Police Constable Gary Wilson on 415415.
