A man has died after his motorbike collided with a car in Queen’s Park last night (25).

The 54-year-old driver of the car, a Mercedes, was arrested for causing death by careless driving and is currently in hospital.

The victim, in his mid-30s, smashed into car at the junction of Salusbury Road and Brooksville Avenue, shortly after 10pm.

He was treated at the scene by London Ambulance Service paramedics but pronounced dead at the scene.

Both roads were cordoned off last night, and a forensics tent was erected at the scene.

Cllr Mark Cummins, who lives in nearby Windermere Avenue, said speeding had been on the increase in the area, adding: “Speeding traffic, particularly motorcycles, in Salusbury road has been on the increase and needs looking into, with so many schools in the street, this is an important concern.”
