The motorcyclist, who had been riding a green and white Peugeot Django, was found in Saunders Way at around 10:52 yesterday morning (Monday) by a member of the public who lives nearby. They did not see the crash, which it’s thought had happened only moments before.
As previously reported by Island Echo, the male was rushed to St Mary’s Hospital under Police escort. He has since been flown to Southampton General Hospital for specialist treatment.
Officers investigating the circumstances of the incident are now appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
Anyone who saw the crash or the rider on his motorbike shortly before it happened are asked to contact the Roads Policing Team on 101, quoting Operation Tax.
