Saturday, March 26, 2022

We are appealing for witnesses and dashcam footage following a fatal collision in Cliviger.

Officers were called to The Long Causeway shortly after 3pm yesterday (Friday March 25th) after reports of a collision between a motorbike and an SUV car.

The collision occurred when, for reasons currently unknown, a Yamaha motorbike has entered the opposite carriageway and collided with a Seat Ateca.

The rider of the motorbike, a 20-year-old man from Burnley, suffered fatal injuries and was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. 

The driver of the Seat, a man in his 60s, suffered minor injuries.

A road closure was put in place for several hours to allow investigation work to be carried out. The road has since been fully re-opened.

We are now appealing for witnesses to establish the exact circumstances surrounding the collision.

Sgt Craig Salmon of Lancashire Police’s Tactical Operations, said: “This collision has resulted in a young man sadly losing his life and first and foremost my thoughts are with his loved ones at this extremely distressing time.

“We are now working to establish the full circumstances of what led to the collision and I would ask any witnesses or anybody with dashcam or CCTV footage which could assist our investigation to contact police as soon as possible."

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting log 0824 of March 25, 2022.
