Naughton – Fatal collision

A man has died following a single-vehicle road traffic collision in Naughton.

Police were called at 12.55pm this afternoon, Saturday 24 September, to reports that a grey Suzuki motorcycle had collided with a telegraph pole in New Road.

Ambulance crews were also in attendance but despite their best efforts, the rider – a man believed to be aged in his 60s – sadly died at the scene.

New Road is currently closed whilst a collision investigation takes place but is expected to reopen later this evening.

Officers would like to hear from any witnesses to the collision and are keen to trace the driver of a black Toyota Rav4 who may have been driving in the area at the time.

There are also asking anyone else who was driving in the area just prior to the incident and who has a dashcam fitted in their vehicle, to review the footage for anything that may be of assistance.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, quoting reference: CAD 172 of 24 September.
