Appeal for information after man dies in Darnall collision

Police officers are appealing for witnesses after a man died in a collision in the Darnall area of Sheffield yesterday (7 September).

At around 5.40pm, it is reported that a red and white, Honda Trials off road motorcycle was travelling along Staniforth Road, near to the junction on Ouseburn Road, when it appeared to lose control.

The bike and rider slid along the carriageway before colliding with a kerb and a parked car. The bike continued to slide along the road, coming to stop under the front of a bus.

Emergency services attended, but a 20-year-old man was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

His family are being supported by specialist officers at this time.

Enquiries are underway to establish the exact circumstances of the collision and officers are asking anyone who saw what happened to contact them.

They are particularly keen to hear from anyone who saw the motorcycle being ridden in the area before the collision.

Please contact 101 quoting incident number 695 of 7 September with any information.
