POLICE are appealing for information after a motorcyclist was seriously injured following a crash in Solihull.

A VW Polo and a Zero SPZ electric motorbike crashed at the junction of Catherine De Barnes Lane and Shadowbrook Lane on October 7 at around 5.30pm.

West Midlands Police said it wants to hear from the occupants of a car travelling directly behind the Polo who will have seen what happened.

The biker was taken to hospital with serious fractures.

The driver of the Polo remained at the scene and is assisting with the investigation.

Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes, from the serious collision investigation unit, said: “We are told by witnesses that a red Vauxhall Astra, possibly a 64 plate, was behind the VW Polo at the time of the collision.

“I believe the occupants of that car may hold key information that is relevant to our enquiry.

“I must emphasise that I consider those occupants to be witnesses in this case and I would urge them, and any other witnesses who haven’t spoken to us to come forward.

“You can help us get the much needed answers for everyone involved.”
