A MOTORCYCLIST died and two other people were injured in the crash on Fish Hill yesterday afternoon involving a car and two motorbikes.

The collision, involving a red Seat Leon and Honda and Yamaha motorbikes, happened around 3.45pm on the A44 in Broadway, near the junction of Buckle Street and on the Gloucestershire border.

The rider of the Honda, a man in his 50s from Berkshire, suffered serious injuries and died at the scene.

West Midlands Ambulance Service sent two ambulances and a paramedic officer. The Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance attended, along with a South Western ambulance.




On arrival crews found a man in cardiac arrest with police officers having already started CPR.

Ambulance staff quickly assessed the man but sadly nothing could be done to save him and he was pronounced dead at the scene.


The second motorcyclist, also a man, was taken to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

His injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

The female car driver was taken to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital by South Western Ambulance Service.

Two crews from Chipping Camden arrived first and Gloucestershire Fire Service disconnected the battery to the car involved to prevent it from catching fire.

Officers investigating the incident now want anyone who witnessed it and has not yet spoke to the police or anyone with dash cam footage to get in touch.

Insp Dan Wakeford, from Gloucestershire Constabulary’s Roads Policing Unit, said: “This was a very serious collision which, sadly, resulted in a man losing his life.

“Our thoughts are with his family and friends as well as all those involved in this very sad incident.

“We are very grateful to everyone who assisted at the scene and those who have come forward already with information to help us determine what caused the collision.

Anyone with any information or dash cam footage should call Gloucestershire Police on 101.
