A 37-year-old motorcyclist has died after being involved in a collision with a car yesterday morning.

The man from Shoreham-by-Sea, died at the scene and the driver of the car, a 69-year-old woman from Pulborough, suffered minor injuries.

Sussex Police are appealing for witnesses to the collision which happened on the A29 at Bury, near Arundel, on Sunday 

It occurred at 10.34am just south of the Murco garage when a black Kawasaki motorcycle travelling north was in collision with a blue Audi A4 car travelling south.

Sergeant Rob Baldwin, of the Sussex Road Policing Unit, said: "I would urge any witness we have not yet spoken with to contact us.

"We would particularly like to talk to a group of motorcyclists who were travelling northbound on the A29 at Bury just before the collision occurred, and who I believe would have seen what happened."

Sgt Baldwin added: "The road was closed for six hours while investigation and recovery work took place, and I would like to thank motorists for their patience."

Anyone with information is asked to phone Sussex Police on 101 or email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk, quoting Operation Guardian.

Older drivers, very quick to point the stick are you not.
Perhaps for a change the you could see the accident in the eyes of the motorist who is pilloried for his being on the road when we all know motorcyclists are a law to themselves and put themselves in dangerous situations, not unlike cyclists.

Thank you Nosfaratu for your completely un-caring & totally negative comment. As we have not been privileged to the police report yet, maybe you could refrain from making such derogatory comments? Please consider this man's family, friends & work colleagues before pointing the finger of blame! Unless you were present, nobody knows who was at fault, if anyone!
