Police are appealing for witnesses after a 37-year-old Trowbridge man suffered serious leg injuries after a crash on the A361 near Semington on Tues-day night.
The incident happened at 7.02pm between the roundabout on the junction of the A350/A361 and the roundabout near West Wilts Crematorium.
The rider, travelling from Trowbridge to Melksham on a Yamaha 600, collided with a central refuge illuminated bollard outside the crematorium. He was hurled into the air, before landing on the front of a passing black Saab 95 car, travelling in the same direction.
The motorcyclist, who sustained a broken leg in the incident, was taken to the Royal United Hospital in Bath, and was due to be released this week.
The driver of the Saab, who is also local, was shocked but not hurt in the collision.
Witnesses can contact PC Mark Cargill at Wiltshire Police on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously.
