A motorcyclist has died after a crash between the bike he was riding and two cars near Shrewsbury.

The crash happened in Preston Gubbals, north of Shrewsbury

The crash happened just after 1pm on Wednesday on the A528 Shrewsbury Road in Preston Gubbals, outside Roger Hotchkiss Car Sales, around four miles north of Shrewsbury.

The male motorcyclist, whose age is not yet known, was confirmed dead at the scene and a man who was in one of the cars was taken to hospital as a precaution.

West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman Jamie Arrowsmith said: “On arrival, crews discovered the motorcyclist, a man, with very serious injuries following the collision.

“Ambulance staff performed CPR and administered advanced life support but sadly it became apparent nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“Following assessment at the scene, a man from one of the cars was taken to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital as a precaution.

“A man and a woman who were travelling in the second car were discharged at the scene.”

Diversions were in place, with the road shut for several hours as emergency services dealt with the incident.

Three ambulances and a paramedic officer were sent to the crash along with the Midlands Air Ambulance crew from Cosford in a rapid response car.
