Woman left fighting for life after motorbike crash in Urmston

A motorcyclist is in a critical condition after coming off her motorbike in Trafford.

At about 7.30pm on Sunday 12 March 2017, a red Honda motorbike was travelling along Crofts Bank Road in Urmston, and when it reached the junction of Canterbury Road, a White Vauxhall Zafira started to pull out of the junction. The motorcyclist lost control of the bike and both crossed onto the opposite side of the road, where the rider came off the bike.

The rider, a 20-year-old woman, was taken to hospital, where she remains in a critical condition.

Police have launched an investigation to establish what happened.
