A motorcyclist and his passenger remain in a serious condition in hospital five days after a collision in St Albans.

Both were taken to the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel after the serious collision, which occurred shortly after 7pm on the A414, between the Park Street roundabout and J8 of the M1, last Friday (4).

The woman pillion passenger was taken by air ambulance.

A spokesman for Herts Police said that the motorcyclists, riding a red Harley Davidson, were travelling towards the M1 when the bike collided with a grey Toyota Yaris.

East of England Ambulance Service media officer Richard Dunne said an ambulance, rapid response vehicle and the Essex Air Ambulance were dispatched to the collision at about 7.10pm.

He added that the motorcyclists both suffered serious pelvic and leg injuries, and were taken to hospital with multiple fractures.

Police officers from the Beds, Cambs and Herts roads policing unit are appealing for witnesses.

PC Bob Hauxwell, investigating, said: “I would urge anyone who may have driven on that stretch of the A414 prior to, or shortly after the collision took place to contact us.

“Also, if anyone saw the Harley Davidson being driven along the A414 prior to the crash, I would also urge them to come forward.”

Anyone with information can contact PC Hauxwell on 101.
