Fatal crash

A BIKER has died after a collision in Sandiacre.

Police closed Ilkeston Road at its junction with Stanton Gate for nearly three hours after the Suzuki 1000cc bike collided with a red Ford Ka at 7.15pm on Tuesday.

The rider from Sandiacre died en route to hospital, police have said.

Police had to deal with a separate incident after a driver drove through the road closure, despite ‘fatal accident’ signs, and crashed into a telegraph pole.
