A public appeal for dashcam footage has been launched following a collision which left a motorcyclist seriously injured. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The incident took on the A483 northbound carriageway near to the Posthouse roundabout, at around 8:15am this morning (Friday 4th May). ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

It involved a grey Hyundai and a black Triumph motorcycle. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The rider of the motorbike, a 48-year-old man from Wrexham, was taken to Aintree University Hospital by air ambulance. He is believed to have sustained serious but not life threatening injuries. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The driver of the Hyundai is not believed to have been injured. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The collision resulted in the road being closed for nearly two hours, with the southbound carriageway temporarily closed to allow the air ambulance to land at the scene. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Police are now calling on witnesses – particularly anyone with dashcam footage – to come forward to assist with the investigation. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Police Constable Chris Jones said: “Enquiries in relation to this incident are ongoing and I am keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“I would also like to hear from anyone who believes they have dashcam footage of the collision itself or of the vehicles in the moments leading up to the incident.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

As part of the investigation officers are looking to identify a second motorcyclist who was riding in the area at the time. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

PC Jones added: “Several witnesses have reported seeing a second motorcyclist and we believe they may have vital information in relation to this incident. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The rider is described as wearing a high-visibility jacket which was marked ‘Airline Services’ or ‘Airport Services’. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“I urge the rider, or anyone who thinks they may know who the rider is, to contact the team here at Cheshire Police.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Anyone with any information in relation to the incident is asked to contact Cheshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 53899. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
