Motorcyclist killed in A47 crash near King’s Lynn

Biker collided with central reservation and was hit by a car

A motorcyclist was killed in a crash near King's Lynn last night.

The man, whose details have not been released, died after hitting the central reservation and then colliding with a car on the A47 at Walpole Highway, just under two miles from Lynn's Pullover roundabout.

A police spokesman said the motorcyclist, who had been travelling as part of a group of three, died from head injuries as a result of hitting the central barrier. He was also hit by a blue Renault Megane, but the fatal injury appeared to come from the initial impact.

The bikes were travelling towards Wisbech in the outside lane of the dual carriageway when the crash happened.
