An off-road biker broke his arm after colliding with a BMW in Bradford.

Police are appealing for information about the crash, in Upper Rushton Road, Fagley, at 4.30pm yesterday, and the whereabouts of the bike afterwards.

A 24-year-old man was riding the bike when he was in collision with a blue BMW car, which was waiting to turn right.

The rider, from Bradford, suffered a broken arm in the collision and was taken to hospital.

The BMW driver, also a local man, was uninjured.

Sergeant Nigel Fawcett-Jones from the Western Area Roads Policing Unit, said: “When police attended the collision, they found that the bike had left the scene.

“I am appealing to anyone who might have seen an off-road bike riding along Upper Rushton Road prior to the collision, or anyone who might have seen it being removed from the scene.”
