A motorcyclist was taken to Watford General Hospital following a collision with a 4X4 yesterday (Sunday) afternoon.

Jake Asby, media officer for the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust said that paramedics were called to Batchwood Drive at about 3pm following reports of a collision.

He said: “We sent a rapid response vehicle and ambulance crew to assist. A man at the scene, believed to be in his 40s - who was conscious and breathing - was treated before being taken to Watford General Hospital for further treatment.”

Jake said there were no specific details of the motorcyclist’s injuries, but “there wasn’t any critical care resources required which indicates that the patient hadn’t sustained anything too serious or life-threatening”.

A spokesman for Herts Police said officers were also called to Waverley Road, at its junction with Batchwood Drive, as the road was blocked as a result of the collision between a Land Rover Freelander and a motorbike - the make of which was not known.

Herts county council’s highway contractor, Ringway, was then called to help clear up, as there was oil on the road and damage to a bollard. Waverley Road was re-opened at 4.20pm.
