A motorcyclist was airlifted to hospital with a serious head injury after an accident near St Albans this evening.

For reasons unknown, a blue Audi A3 and a white and silver Honda CBR 600 crashed on the B556 Bell Lane, south of London Colney and opposite the entrance to the De Havilland Aircraft Heritage Musuem.

A man in his 30s who was on a motorcycle suffered a serious head injury as a result of the crash, which happened at about 5.30pm. He was airlifted to a London hospital.

The driver of the Audi, a woman, also suffered minor injuries.

Herts police are appealing for information and witnesses to the incident.

Sergeant Will Hood, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, said: “We are working hard to piece together what happened in the lead up to the collision and have closed the road to conduct a thorough investigation at the scene.

“Many people would have been making their way home from work at the time so there would have been a fair volume of traffic.”
