Biker dies in early-morning crash after police try to stop him

A BIKER has died after he came off his motorcycle while being followed by police. The man, who is believed to be in his 40s, died after crashing on Mannamead Road in Plymouth. No other vehicle was involved in the crash, which happened at about 4.20am yesterday. The road was closed for seven hours after the accident as police cleared up and carried out investigations. A police spokesman said last night that a patrol car with two officers saw the motorcycle. Because of the way in which it was being ridden they decided to stop check the vehicle and rider. “The officers lost sight of the motorcycle whilst following it and then came across it after it had been involved in a collision,” a police spokesman said. The officers tried to resuscitate the rider. The man was taken to Derriford Hospital where he died a short time later.
