Incident Room Set Up As Driver Hunt Grows

Police in Warwickshire are launching a major investigation into the death of a motorcyclist who was killed on the M40 on Monday.

Detectives are joining the hunt for the lorry involved in the crash that killed Ronald Cobbledick, aged 43, from Waterfoot in Rossendale, Lancashire.

An incident room has been set up and uniformed officers will return to the area exactly a week after the crash, on Monday morning to talk to drivers of large vehicles at the Barnhill Services.

Mr Cobbledick died after he was struck while riding on the M40 southbound, just before junction 16.

Accident posters are to be put up to try and find any other witnesses to what has been described by police as a “very serious incident”.

It is thought that a lorry driver struck Mr Cobbledick’s Piaggio motor scooter, but did not stop.

Anyone who saw anything is being urged to contact police on 01926 415257.
