A MOTORCYCLIST has died following a crash with a car near Southam.

Despite the efforts of passersby and ambulance crews nothing could be done to save the life of the rider – who was in his 50s – following the collision on the A423 Banbury Road in Wormleighton shortly before 5.15pm on Tuesday January 8.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulance crews found a motorcyclist and a car which had left the road and were in a ditch.

“The motorcyclist, a man, was being given CPR by a nurse who was passing the scene and stopped to help. Ambulance crews took over resuscitation efforts and worked as a team to administer advanced life support to the man.

“Sadly, he couldn’t be saved and was confirmed deceased on scene a short time later.

“The car driver, a woman, was out of the vehicle and was given treatment on scene for minor injuries. She didn’t require hospital treatment.”

Police are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage to call them on 101.
