Police investigating a serious collision on the A140 in which a motorcyclist suffered life-changing injuries are urging the driver of a car who stopped at the scene to come forward.

The incident happened on Saturday, July 26 at about 10.50am outside Lodge Farm at Long Stratton when a black Ford Fiesta and a white Toyota Hilux, both travelling towards Norwich, were involved in a collision.

This resulted in the Hilux crossing into the opposite carriageway before colliding with a black Honda motorcycle, which was travelling towards Ipswich.

The motorcyclist, a man in his 50s, was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, where he continues to receive treatment for serious life-changing injuries.

Officers are keen to trace the driver of a vehicle which was travelling in front of the black Fiesta towards Norwich and stopped at the scene to help.

The driver, who left before police arrived, is believed to be a key witness and officers are urging them to come forward.

The make and model of the car is unknown.

Witnesses should contact PC Richard Syrett at Wymondham Roads Policing on 101.
