A MOTORCYCLIST suffered a suspected broken leg after he was in collision with a car, causing major congestion near junction 16 of the M4.

The man, in his 40s, was taken to Great Western Hospital after the incident at 5.26pm tonight.

Eye-witnesses reported several cars and a motorcyclist collided on Great Western Way heading towards Blagrove Roundabout and traffic build up in the surrounding areas.

One driver, who asked to remain anonymous, said: “A motorbike has become lodged between a sign in the central reservation opposite the exit of Windmill Hill Business Park.”

Another said: “It looks like the bike has gone into the back of the car because the Vauxhall Vectra had the rear bumper was gone, the wing mirror and the right rear tyre was flat.”

A spokesman for South Western Ambulance Service said: “We were called at 5.26pm to reports of a collision between a car and a motorbike. we sent an ambulance and a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle.

“The motorcyclist was taken to Great Western Hospital with a suspected fractured leg.”

Interesting! I wonder if the Vecta pulled out without looking?
A rider of that age and with a bike like that is unlikely to be racing around like a loony.

Lets hope he recovers and everyone recovers well.

2 sides to that as with everything. there are more than a few bikers out there who never "Think Car" and just weave in and out expecting cars to keep out of their way too!

But yes agree, hope he fully recovers and soon.
