Teenage motorcycle rider dies in Newbury collision

A teenage motorcyclist has been killed in a crash involving his motorbike and a car in Newbury.

Thames Valley Police said his Yamaha machine was in a collision with a blue Renault Clio, just after 22:30 BST on Friday.

The 17-year-old, from the Thatcham area, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers are appealing for witnesses to the crash, which happened on the A339 between the Robin Hood and Vodafone roundabouts.

PC Tom Offer said: "This is a fairly busy road and I am sure that there were other motorists in the area at the time who might have seen the collision happen, or the vehicles being driven beforehand.
