A BIKER has died from injuries sustained in a crash on the A49 at Beeston weeks after a local farmer demanded police take action against speeding motorcyclists.
Although there is no suggestion the 39-year-old Northwich man who died was speeding, farmer Geoff Willis said: “I told the police bikes go up and down here at 100mph.
“We know there’s a time trial which involves them coming from the direction of Warrington at 100mph and then back again. It’s frightening.”
Mr Willis, of Fields Farm near the scene of the accident, said: “I’ve lived here for 20 years and there have been 10 or 11 deaths within a mile of where I live.”
The crash victim died in Countess of Chester Hospital on Tuesday, September 30, after being injured in the accident on the A49 between Cholmondeley Castle and the Cholmondeley Arms pub, at 7.45am on Sunday.
The Chronicle understands he was not married, but lived with his partner on the Kingsmead estate in Northwich.
The man was riding a black Suzuki GSXR 1000.
“Two motorcycles were travelling together towards Whitchurch when one left the road and collided with a hedge,” said police spokeswoman Rachel Hayes.
The road was closed in both directions from the time of the accident until about 12.30pm.
Mr Willis added: “It is a problem we’ve had and I had informed the police about five weeks ago. I’d like them to do something about it.”
PC Leah Booker from the Crewe Special Investigation Unit appealed for witnesses to contact police.
