According to a police announcement, the accident occurred at just after 6pm when the 26-year-old motorcyclist crashed into the car, being driven a man of 47, whilst overtaking. The driver of the car had been turning off the main road to park outside a supermarket when the collision with the 26-year-old occurred.

According to traffic police, the 26-year-old was not wearing a helmet while he was not insured and his motorbike did not have registration plates.
