Chelmsford: Biker Injured In A12 Crash
A motorcyclist is critically ill in hospital after a crash on the A12 near Chelmsford.
It happened when a Honda motorcycle collided with a Ford Fiesta at the Boreham interchange last night (Friday Janaury 11th).
The 53-year-old from Latchindon, was taken to hospital with a number of very serious injuries and is in a critical condition.
The car driver, a woman from the Braintree area, was shocked but uninjured.
The southbound track of the A12 slip road from the Boreham interchange was closed for around five hours to allow a detailed investigation of the scene to be conducted and the reopening of the road was delayed due to freezing temperatures and the necessity for the road to be gritted.
Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to contact Pc Pedro Anido at the Road Policing unit at Chelmsford on 101.
