Witness sought to fatal A1 crash

Witness Appeal

Police are seeking witnesses to a fatal crash on the A1 (M) near the Blind Lane interchange at Chester-le-Street at around 7pm yesterday.

The Highways Agency were attending a report of a broken down vehicle on the hard shoulder of the southbound carriageway when a man appeared from the side of the road.
The man, who was not connected with the broken down vehicle, ran across both carriageways a number of times before being involved in a collision with an articulated lorry travelling south. He suffered serious injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The lorry was slightly damaged and the driver was reported to be suffering from shock but did not need medical treatment.

The man who died is believed to be from the Newcastle on Tyne area but is not being named at this time.

A number of motorists reported seeing a man running across both carriageways and the hard shoulder. Any witnesses who have not already done so are asked to ring Durham Police on 101 and ask for the Collision Investigation Unit.

Photo’s online from the Xmas meeting

Photo’s are now online from Saturdays meeting of the BikeWise Mini Bike Club.
Many Thanks to all who attended and to all the hard work that went into making the bikes and riders have a ‘festive’ look.
Thanks once again to all the marshals and others who help with the running of the club, for all the food & cakes that were brought along on the day & to John Attle for taking the photo’s
Here’s hoping that ‘Santa’ is feeling in a good mood as he passes over the North East as from what I heard on the day his sleigh might be getting pulled by Mini Moto’s until he gets here and then the reindeers will have to take over again  Smile
Next meeting is next year…. Sunday 5th January 2013 at QC Space and an email will be sent out beforehand.
If you have a bit of time over the festive season and are wanting something to do, then visit the website and have a look at our new World Superbike and Moto GP albums from 2012.
Last time you’ll see Max Biaggi & Casey Stoner  racing, Valentino Rossi on a Ducati, James Ellison in Moto GP, Ben Spies on a Yamaha and lots more and it’ll give you the chance to check out the different styles of riders.Who knows… one day it could be you……
