St Albans motorists may hold vital information on a road crash on the A1(M) which resulted in a motorcyclist’s death.
The fatality occurred shortly before 7pm on Friday, when a red Honda motorbike travelling on the northbound carriageway lost control shortly before the Hatfield tunnel.
The reasons for the loss of control are not yet clear however the motorbike is not currently believed to have made contact with any other vehicles.
The rider, a man in his 20s, came off the motorbike and suffered serious injuries as a result. He was taken to Lister Hospital in Stevenage where sadly he was pronounced dead.
It is believed that a number of vehicles were also in a separate minor collision as drivers took action to avoid the initial accident. No one else was thought to have been hurt.

Road Policing Sergeant Peter Scholes, who is investigating the incident, said: “I am keen to trace the driver of a dark-coloured vehicle that was travelling a short distance from the motorbike when the incident occurred.
“I’d also like to speak to anyone else who saw the motorbike before the collision when it was travelling either on the A1(M) or the A414 from St Albans. These people might have information that is vital to establishing what happened in the moments leading up to the collision.”
