Appeal following serious collision in Solihull

We're appealing for witnesses and information following a serious collision involving a VW Polo and motorbike in Solihull.

We're particularly keen to hear from the occupants of a car travelling directly behind the Polo who will have seen what happened at the junction of Catherine De Barnes Lane and Shadowbrook Lane.

It happened at around 5.30pm on Thursday (7 October) and the rider of the Zero SPZ electric motorbike remains in hospital with serious fractures. 

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

Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes, from our 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.”

You can contact us via live chat on our website, or call 101, and quote log 3146 of 7 October.  Alternatively email
