Police seek two motorcyclists who may have been witnesses
January 30, 2020
An appeal is being made by detectives investigating the double fatality that occurred in Battersea last year for two motorcyclists to come forward.
They are not believed to have been directly involved in the collision but officers believe that they may have witness information that would be vital to the investigation
Shortly before 8.20pm on Friday, 30 August 2019 a motorcyclist and pedestrian collided on Battersea Park Road. The pedestrian, a 34-year-old woman, died as a result of her injuries. The rider of the motorcycle, a 40-year-old man, was taken to hospital where he died on Sunday, 1 September. The two motorcyclists sought were on Battersea Park Road in the seconds before the collision.
Detective Sergeant Andy Russell, from the Roads and Transport Policing Command, said: “The riders of these motorbikes have not yet come forward and it may be they are unaware of the severity of this incident.
“We believe they may be key witnesses and have information that could help our investigation and we would ask them to call police as soon as possible.”
Anyone with information should call the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, based at Merton Traffic Garage, on 020 8543 5157 with CAD reference CAD 7915/30AUG19.
