A motorcyclist who was hospitalised in a crash between Wheathampstead and Welwyn Garden City is still in a critical condition.

The collision occurred on Saturday on the B653 Marford Road, 250 metres east of the junction with Cory Wright Lane, just outside Wheathampstead.

A white Yamaha motorcycle was travelling west at around 2.10am when it collided with a blue Toyota Prius going in the opposite direction.

A man in his 50s, who was driving the Prius, and a female passenger suffered minor injuries, but the motorcyclist – a man in his 20s – suffered life-threatening injuries and had to be taken to Lister Hospital.

Today, Herts police said he is still in a critical condition. They have appealed for anyone who witnessed the collision, saw either vehicle shortly before crash, or has dashboard camera footage of the crash or surrounding circumstances to make contact by ringing 101 and quoting incident reference 83 of September 22.
