We are appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision on the A3100 earlier this evening (Tuesday, 26 September).
Police were called to Old Portsmouth Road at 8.30pm following reports of a road traffic collision between the riders of two motorcycles.
An 18-year-old man was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. A 19-year-old man was given medical treatment at the scene. He has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and is currently in police custody.
The collision took place on Old Portsmouth Road, close to the junction with Tilthams Corner Road. The road will remain closed from the roundabout where Old Portsmouth Road meets New Pond Lane to the junction with Tilthams Corner Road for several hours while we conduct our enquiries at the scene.
Were you travelling along the A3100 between Tilthams Corner Road and New Pond Road between 8.15pm and 8.30pm this evening? Did you see or hear anything that might assist our investigation?
We are appealing to anyone who might have CCTV, dashcam or helmet cam footage that may help to get in touch. You can contact us quoting CAD 0831 of 26 SEPT via:
