Our Roads Policing Team is looking for witnesses and further information after a motorcyclist died in a collision on Aughton Road, Rotherham yesterday (Wednesday 15 November).

At 1.24pm, we were called to reports of a collision involving a red Honda motorcycle and silver Vauxhall Movano van. The motorcycle was being ridden in the direction of Swallownest when it was in collision with the van, which was travelling in the opposite direction close to the junction with Alexandra Road.

The motorcycle caught fire as a result of the crash and its 19-year-old rider sadly died at the scene. His family has been notified and is being supported by specialist officers.

The driver of the van remained at the scene and was not physically injured. They are assisting with our enquiries.

Emergency services remain on Aughton Road this evening and it is closed between the junctions of Rotherham Road and Aughton Avenue while they continue their work.

If you witnessed the collision, or have dash cam footage of either vehicle prior, please contact us. You can report it via our online portal or by calling 101, quoting incident number 413 of 15 November.
