Authorities in Leeds are calling on the public for information regarding a significant road incident involving a motorbike and a parked car. The incident transpired at approximately 1:30 pm yesterday (Friday) on Raynville Road in Bramley, just outside Premier Pizza.
The motorbike involved is reported to be an off-road bike, and its 24-year-old male rider sustained serious injuries, necessitating transportation to the hospital.
Law enforcement officials are keen to hear from any individuals who may have witnessed the collision or possess CCTV footage capturing the event or the motorbike’s activities leading up to it.
The motorbike, described as having been removed from the scene prior to the arrival of officers, was heading towards Waterloo Lane at the time of the collision. Currently unaccounted for, officers are requesting information from those who might aid in locating the vehicle.
A cautionary note has been issued by officers, alerting the public that the motorbike, in its current state, may pose a danger to riders and could potentially cause additional harm if used.
