Motorcyclist seriously hurt in Bognor crash
At 12.41am on Tuesday (12 September) a motorcyclist crashed in High Street, Bognor Regis.
No other vehicle was damaged and no other person was injured.
The 29-year-old man from Hackney, East London, was taken by road ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton to be treated for serious leg and head injuries which are not life threatening.
A few minutes earlier the motorcycle had failed to stop for police in nearby Chichester Road, and was being sought at the time of the crash.
The IPCC (Independent Police Complaints Commission) have been informed as a matter of standard procedure because of the police intervention and we await their decision as to the extent of any involvement or supervision they require to have in the investigation.
Meanwhile Sussex and Surrey Road Policing officers investigating the crash and anyone who saw it, or who saw the motorcycle in Bognor in the moments leading up to it, is asked to contact police via firstname.lastname@example.org or call 101, quoting Operation Easton.
