AN INQUEST into the death of a motorcyclist Christopher ‘Stig’ Clarke involved in a road traffic collision took place on Wednesday (July 27)

The 32-year-old father, from Yardley, was riding a Yamaha motorbike when he collided with a black Toyota Yaris and was catapulted more than 200ft in the air on the A452 Collector Road on March 20.

The inquest, held at Birmingham and Solihull’s Coroner Court, heard the motorcyclist reached speeds between 97mph and 103mph and as a result died from multiple injuries – including a serious head injury.

The driver of the oncoming Toyota Yaris, who was heading towards Auckland Drive at the time of the collision, suffered a fractured bone, cuts and bruises.
