A motorcyclist who collided with a 4x4 on the A29 Bognor Road, Broadbridge Heath, on Saturday afternoon (14 September) has sadly died.

The incident involving a blue Jeep and a Black Kawasaki occurred at the junction with Rowhook Road about 1.39pm.

Officers were tasked with making the motorcyclist’s next of kin aware before being able to confirm he sustained fatal injuries at the scene. He was a 39-year-old man from Surrey.

No other injuries were reported.

The victim is believed to have been travelling southbound with at least one other motorcycle – a blue Yamaha – when the collision occurred.

Anyone who saw what happened, or saw either of the vehicles in the area beforehand – specifically anyone with dash cam – is asked to email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk quoting Operation Yorkhill.

A section of the A29 was closed until approximately 8pm as emergency services attended the scene, and officers would like to thank road users for their patience and understanding.
